Get Tiled Away
Saturday, September 6
Next time you visit Ellis Island’s Registry Room, Carnegie Hall, the Bronx Zoo’s Elephant House, or Grand Central Terminal, look up! These NYC landmarks all contain vaults—arched ceilings of beautiful, interlocking tile—designed more than a century ago by master builders Rafael Guastavino and his son. View images and models of these architectural marvels in the exhibition Palaces for the People: Guastavino and the Art of Structural Tile. Then, design your own tiled picture frame – the perfect gift for Grandparents’ Day on Sunday, September 7.
