On the walls

There's an interesting exhibition on the history of the New School Art Collection in the larger exhibit space at Parsons at the moment. The centerpiece is the newly restored mural Camilo Egas painted for the wall facing the dance studio 80 years ago, "Ecuadorian Festival" (above), companion to Clemente Orozco's "Call for Revolution and Universal Brotherhood" (at the bottom of here" (at the bottom of here) and Thomas Hart Benton's "America Today" murals (here and here). At right you see it reflected in Michael Clegg and Martin Guttman's 1989 photo "Assembly of Deans" - yes, those are New School deans!
