Open House New York invites you to rediscover the work of Hildreth Meière (1892-1961), one of the most acclaimed American decorative artists of the 20th century, during a Sunday afternoon open house of the artist’s most spectacular mosaic murals, wall sculptures, stained glass windows, and other unique works.

Often hidden in plain sight, Meière’s monumental works - completed over the course of a forty-year career - can be found throughout the city and around the country. Largely forgotten today, Meière was once considered the most famous muralist of the Art Deco period, and the most prolific in the country at a time when few female artists achieved such renown.

This event is organized as a self-guided walking tour. Each ticket holder will be given a map of featured sites at the start of the event, which they may visit in any order. Guest speakers will be at select sites to discuss the artist’s work and answer questions. Information about check-in location will be emailed to you one week before the event.

Organized by Open House New York and the International Hildreth Meière Association, this event coincides with the publication of The Art Deco Murals of Hildreth Meière (Andrea Monfried Editions).
