Cornell University Restores WPA Murals

Cornell University and its conservators faced a lot of challenges rescuing three rare 7-by-50-foot murals from the Goldwater Memorial Hospital on Roosevelt Island.

The first challenge was finding two of them.

“We didn’t even know what colors they were, because no one had seen them since they were painted over,” said Andrew C. Winters, the director of capital projects and planning for Cornell Tech, the home of the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Innovation Institute.
