May 6, 2015: John Scott Lecture on Gargoyles and Plaster Sculpture

SCNY'15-John Scott Gargoyle Lecture - 10(By Anthony Almeida)

A presentation on gargoyles and plaster sculpture in New York architecture by John Scott, Salmagundian and Conservator-Analyst of Art and Heritage, was an insightful awakening. Drawing from his technical and historical knowledge, John introduced us to the many painstaking steps involved in restoring and conserving gargoyls, artifacts and architectural structures. After John’s talk, the two frolicking satyr gargoyles hanging in our bar room area will never appear quite the same. Hmm…or I may never appear quite the same to them. Hail to the “Monument Men” and Women of our Curatorial Team!
