Chipping Away: The Art of Stone Carving
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Have you ever wondered about the thousands of inscriptions on Green-Wood's gravestones? How were they were carved? What makes some truly spectacular and some not so great? Join us for a unique adventure with John Nash, modern-day stone carver and teacher of lettering and calligraphy. Nash has plied his craft in England and America for decades, inscribing monuments for Westminster Abbey, Harvard University, Yale University, Rhodes House at Oxford, and many other historic sites. He is in New York for a rare visit (he's completing an inscription at Green-Wood) and will share his insights and expertise on this once-in-a-lifetime tour. Jeff Richman, Green-Wood's historian, will introduce Nash and give context and history as we go along.
Venue: Green-Wood Cemetery
500 25th St
