Dome Sweet Dome
Thurday, July 31
What do Ellis Island’s Registry Room, Carnegie Hall, the Bronx Zoo’s Elephant House, and the Cathedral of St. John the Divine all have in common? Look up! The clues lie in the ceiling. These buildings’ soaring tiled arches and domes are the work of late 19th century Spanish immigrants Rafael Guastavino and his son, Rafael Jr.. Discover their architectural marvels in the exhibition Palaces for the People: Guastavino and the Art of Structural Tile, then build your own dome with us.
