Begrisch Hall at Bronx Community College
Bronx Community College, University Heights, Bronx Bronx Community College, University Heights, Bronx Dramatically sited on the heights overlooking the Harlem River, Harlem Flats, and the New Jersey Palisades beyond, the Gould Memorial Library and the related buildings of the former New York University campus stand as one of the triumphs of late nineteenth-century American architecture. Designed at a time when many institutions of higher learning were expanding their facilities, the library is a monument to two great men—architect Stanford White and chancellor Henry MacCracken.' The Gould Memorial Library is an imposing, classically-inspired structure constructed of yellow Roman brick with limestone and terra-cotta trim. The use of these materials serves to modulate the building's monumental quality and link it to the surrounding landscape. The restrained exterior stands in vivid contrast to the rich interior with its dramatic flow of spaces and its sumptuous stone and marble detailing. The Gould Memorial Library has long been recognized as among the supreme examples of Stanford White's work. The most fitting comment on the building's architectural importance has come, not from architectural critics or the general public, but from White's peers who in 1919 chose the library as the site for the Stanford White Memorial. Although no longer used as a library, the building retains its original configuration and is a major monument of the former New York University campus. Description The stairhall, administrative offices, and central reading room of the Gould Memorial Library form one of the great surviving interiors dating from the period of American architectural history that has come to be known as the American Renaissance. The interior spaces are among the finest designs of Stanford White and reflect his adherence to scientific eclecticism— "the assemblage of pieces from the past...to create harmonious wholes.At this building White combined forms and ideas from the Roman Pantheon and from Renaissance palaces to create an original and highly sophisticated work of art. The library is entered through an exterior portico of six Corinthian columns and a pair of bronze doors. 7 Beyond the doors the visitor stands in a small vestibule that is flanked by bronze lamp standards. The main stairway rises directly in front and subsidiary staircases leading to the basement chapel are set on either side. The barrel-vaulted side stairways, with their handsome railings, lead to a foyer and hallway set in front of the chapel. From the vestibule one gains a glimpse of the reading room located at the end of the grand staircase. A sense of the polychromatic richness of the interior is established immediately upon entering the building by the use of stained-glass windows and bands of red, yellow, black, and white mosaic tile for the floor. The vestibule ceiling is in the form of a shallow dome and forms the first of a progression of domes that culminates in the dome of the reading room. A handsome revolving door has been placed within the vestibule. The short vestibule leads directly to the lower landing of the staircase. This area also has a mosaic floor. Heavy wooden doors on either side lead to offices. From .this landing rise the twenty-four Tennessee-marble steps of the barrel-vaulted stair hall. The stairway is modeled after Renaissance prototypes referred to by White in answer to a critical letter of MacCracken's: I am sure that the staircase as it is designed is all right... I do not see how it will be possible to treat it any other way____Certainly neither the Gold Staircase (of the Ducal Palace) nor the Vatican Staircase look like tunnels, and the New York University one will look far less so, as it is very much more lofty and very much shorter. The staircase is an extremely successful part of the design, symbolically serving as the stairway to knowledge. It is only upon reaching the top of the stairs, or after ascending the stairway to knowledge, that the dome of the reading room (the crown of the storehouse of knowledge) begins to come into sight. The stairway is articulated by two pairs of stone pilast.ers--one pair at the bottom and one pair towards the top of the steps. The middle pilasters support bronze torcheres capped by glass globes. The lower two-thirds of the stairway walls are faced with Portland stone. A band embellished with a Vitruvian scroll pattern separates the stone walls from panels of highly-polished, pale-yellow, Cippolini marble. Above these panels is an entablature that supports a coffered barrel vault. The upper stairway landing is similar in form to the lower landing and vestibule, with a mosaic floor, bronze lamps, and a shallow dome. In the center of the dome is a roundel of green Tiffany stained glass from which hangs a glass globe lamp. The shallow arms of this landing continue the decorative pattern of the stairway-Portland stone walls topped by Cippolini marble panels. L

Biography Hello! My name is Marilyn R. (Meier) O’Brien. My life’s story is reflected in all of my artwork. By sharing with you a bit about my story I believe I can offer you a better understanding of my work. I grew up in Madison and New Glarus, Wisconsin in the 1960’s with my mom, dad, brothers and sisters. I developed my interest in art at a young age. It started with photography. When I was about 13, I had finally saved enough money to purchase a Brownie camera. People always saw me carrying it around, looking for just the right moment for a special photograph. I still have that old camera, but it’s been tucked away because it is really old and very fragile. I was in love with the world in those days! I loved to express myself through my photography. My father (August Meier) used to wait until I left for school, then he would surprise me by having laminated some of the pictures I had taken. I still carry some of those pictures around with me today. In fact, it makes me smile now, to think how my father enjoyed his daughter’s talent. It formed a very special bond between the two of us. My father died when I was 21. Sadly, he never saw me paint. I am just grateful that he and I were able to share my love for photography when I was younger! My artistic talent began to blossom in high school, where my English teacher, Pat Van Dyke, discovered my artistic abilities, and encouraged me to pursue them. After that, I went to school at the UW-Madison. I was under total discipline there, which I did not like at all. I should also mention that my father was very ill at that time, and I worried about him to distraction. Despite these setbacks, I took some very challenging courses. I think my most challenging, and, in my opinion, my best piece of work was a self-portrait. I received an “A+” for that work! Also, now that I am older, I really can appreciate the guidance of Professor Steven French. He using Leonardo da Vince as an example. He had placed a sheet draped in front of the class to place shadows on it to understand the value of shadows in art. I received an "A" on that. It makes me smile when I think of how intensely I was working on it and didn't notice he was behind me until he gave me a compliment on my work and I "jumped-a-mile". I loved those days also. I also attended many art classes at Madison Area Technical College (MATC) in Madison, Wisconsin. I thoroughly enjoyed the artistic classes I was able to attend. Among them, Mr. Steven French’s Art Class, now Professor French, was one of many favorites. History was another favorite class. (Regretfully, I lost a set of beautiful National Geographic Society Art History books many years ago when my home was flooded. To my great dismay, I have been unable to replace them!) I found many creative outlets to express my artistic talents throughout my life. At one point I wanted to be an interior designer. I decorated my first efficiency apartment and was then asked to decorate other homes. Unfortunately, my schedule was too full at the time, so I was unable to do so. Decorating is a hobby that I still enjoy very much. I have always been a bit of a movie buff. I’ve been known to see a movie 100 times so that I can appreciate every detail. After the first viewing, I love to focus on the rich detail of one artistic element at a time – the setting, the lighting, subtleties of the actors, their accents, and so on. The movie, “Gone with the Wind” was one of many favorites! Dancing was another enjoyable outlet for my creativity, and I danced for “Arthur Murray” for a while. I was chosen to travel with the personal instructor as a dancer, but ultimately I chose to turn it down for my state position. I fondly reminisce on those days of dancing, as I’m physically no longer able to dance since my accidents. I intend to dancing again one day soon. Art wasn’t the focus of my career when I started with the State of Wisconsin in various administrative positions, but it did find its way in. I naturally gravitated towards numerous creative projects, including everything from decorating drab bulletin boards to decorating the Christmas trees for two state buildings and the Capitol Christmas rotunda tree. I was also chosen to decorate the Lobby of the GEF II bulletin for the Department of Administration. One person told me she just stood and looked in awe at the beauty of it. I was also proud when my paintings were chosen for exhibit at the Wisconsin Arts Board for three State Office Buildings. I smile when I think back to one particularly funny incident in which I was contacted by the Capitol Police department. One of the officers phoned me to say how frustrated he was with me, because someone had tried to ‘borrow’ one of my Elvis portraits, and since then, the security staff were forced to guard it 24 hours a day! Fortunately for me, they did their job well. In the end, I got back every single portrait! I had started painting in 1965 because I was u
