Tiled Away
Sunday, March 30

Ellis Island’s Registry Room, Carnegie Hall, the Bronx Zoo’s Elephant House, and Grand Central Terminal all contain vaults—arched ceilings of beautiful, interlocking tile —designed by Rafael Guastavino and his son, immigrants from Spain who came to America in 1881. View images and models of these architectural marvels in the exhibition Palaces for the People: Guastavino and the Art of Structural Tile, and find inspiration in Guastavino’s works to design your own tiled picture frame.
