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.

Interior Detail, Nebraska State Capitol, Lincoln, Nebraska by O’Brien Digital Back up to those men in the headdresses. From Wikipedia: The sculptural elements of the building were designed by sculptor Lee Lawrie. Hartley Burr Alexander, a Lincoln native and professor of philosophy, served as “thematic consultant.” It was Alexander’s influence that resulted in the strong American Indian symbology.
