January 17th , 6:00pm – 7:00pm
While Calvert Vaux and Frederick Law Olmsted are recognized as the masterminds behind Central Park, one figure is often overlooked: Jacob Wrey Mould. Architect and Green-Wood permanent resident, Mould played a pivotal role in introducing High Victorian Gothic architecture to New York City, notably seen in the design of the Central Park’s Belvedere Castle and the intricately carved decorations and mosaics embellishing Bethesda Terrace. Join Francis R. Kowsky, author of Hell on Color, Sweet on Song: Jacob Wrey Mould and the Artful Beauty of Central Park, as he discusses Mould’s talents, idiosyncrasies, and impact on some of New York City’s most revered landmarks.
