World Monuments Fund Watch Day
September 25, 2012 · Whitney
The New York Studio School was placed on the World Monuments Fund Watch List for 2012, and recently students worked on a scale transcription of the Chanler ceiling for ‘Watch Day 2012.’ Full time students used charcoal, mirrors and ladders to energetically transcribe the swirling motifs of sea and celestial creatures, flames, and figures that permeate the installation. It was a massive task, but the overall piece felt unified and true to the original.
