Family Program - Immigrant Architect: Rafael Guastavino and Subway Style

This event is no longer on sale.

Saturday March 20

11:00 AM  –  11:45 AM

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 watching illustrator Virginia Lorente share her drawing process live on screen. Be inspired by the Guastavinos' and their big dream in this program for anyone ages 5 to 105! 

This program will take place online. Upon registration, all participants will receive a confirmation e-mail with instructions on how to participate. We encourage you to download the
