Dance, Drama, and Song (1932)

Hildreth M. Meiere (American. 1893 - 1961)

Dance, Drama, and Song

These three large stylized decorative plaques, placed high up on the south façade of Radio City Music Hall, represent the theater’s main activities. A collaboration between the sculptor and muralist Hildreth M. Meiere and famed metalworker Oscar B. Bach, they feature an exciting combination of metals, textures and colors that add playfulness to the plain limestone façade. Meiere first created a series of small, detailed studies; her final gouaches were used by Bach as a blueprint for fabrication in metal and coloration in enamel on a scale never before attempted.
