Have you ever seen an arched ceiling covered with tiles? If so, maybe it was designed by Spanish artist, architect, engineer, designer, musician, and visionary… Rafael Guastavino! He created the “Tile Arch System” which uses tiles to create strong arches and curved vaults, found in New York City in the Old City Hall subway station, Grand Central Terminal, and Ellis Island.
Join us for this special program with authors Berta de Miguel and Kent Diebolt, who will read sections of their beautiful children’s book Immigrant Architect: Rafael Guastavino and the American Dream while illustrator Virginia Lorente shares her drawing process live on screen. Be inspired by the Guastavinos and their big dream in this program for anyone ages 5 to 105!
Free online program, for all ages.
