Apotheosis!


My babies, the murals Thomas Hart Benton painted for the New School, are moving up in the world, or at least uptown. They won't be on display until 2015, in what is now the Whitney Museum. But it's something to look forward to. A space I've worked for years to give people a sense of will soon be a space they can actually enter! For the meantime, the Met has a lovely video recreating the space - minus only the specially designed lighting fixtures, furniture and the view of the skyline through the blue curtains - much higher res here than in the Times article.
