Lamb & Rich, 1890; Renovations, Seth Weine (6th floor Cast Gallery), 2015

The Institute of Classical Architecture & Art is pleased to share a collection of rare plaster casts, commissioned by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in the 1880's-90's, in the Cast Hall on the 6th Floor of The General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen. The Cast Hall opened in 2015 and features plaster replicas of timeless works of art, such as the Roman Discobolus, panels from Ghiberti's Gates of Paradise at the Basilica Di Santa Maria Del Fiore, and the Roman Diadoumenos.
    
For Kids
: We will have play doh and a crafting area in the cast hall for children to make play doh sculptures of the plaster casts. Parents still must supervise their children, there will not be staff on duty to supervise the kids.
