Hildreth Meiere

Hildreth Meiere's mosaics were what first made me want to be a mosaic artist. I saw her work at a chapel at the Wernersville Jesuit Center, and wrote her name on a scrap of paper. I found it later, after I'd started making mosaics, and looked her up. Her range of work is amazing, including medallions at Radio City Music Hall and murals at the National Academy of Sciences.

One of the most joyous things for me is to discover something that has been in plain sight for years. I have walked past these murals countless times, they never registered! Last night, as I photographed the area around Rock Center I took some time to look and photograph these ceramic murals. They are named Drama, Song, and Dance. I was floored by their beauty and technique. Of course there is a story behind them that is well worth knowing. The artist who designed them is named Hildreth Meiere

St. Bartholomew's Church - New York City, New York Narthex Hildreth Meiere Mosaics When St. Bartholomew's was consecrated in 1922, Bertram Goodhue complained that the interior was 'in some ways a good deal of a barn.' Nothing happened. After Goodhue's death, a second campaign for the decoration of the St. Bart's decided on the mosaic murals. (In the 1880s, the art of the mosaic had been revived for Westiminster Cathedral in London.) Alvin W. Krech, a vestry member and chair of the Arts Commi
