Bellarmine Hall Galleries

April 18 – September 21, 2019

Hildreth Meière was a prolific muralist whose commissioned works adorn the walls and ceilings of public buildings from New York to California. Born in New York in 1892, Meière first studied art in Florence, Italy, where she discovered the frescoes and mosaics that were to inform her craft. Continuing her studies in New York, California, and Chicago, she traveled to Europe during the summers where she was introduced to les arts decoratifs, later to be known as Art Deco, of which she became an early exponent.
