Make Your Own (Mini) Monument

Saturday, March 17, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Event Navigation

 

Green-Wood is a veritable outdoor museum of stone sculptures – over 250,000 in all. Each marks a life and a life story. At this hands-on workshop, Neela Wickremesinghe, Green-Wood’s Manager of Preservation and Restoration will offer insights into the art of stone conservation and demonstrate how her team creates replacement parts when monuments need repair. Using the same techniques, each participant will cast his/her own personal plaster ornament to take home.

 

Meet at Sunset Park entrance on 34th Street and 4th Avenue.

 

$20 for members of Green-Wood and BHS / $25 for non-members, including supplies.

 

This program is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
