The Forgotten Mural
In 2008 Andrew recreated a masterpiece, by Edward Laning entitled "The Role of the Immigrant in the Industrial Development of America" painted in 1938 as a WPA project. Andrew's touring exhibit is entitled "The Forgotten Mural" formally the "The Lost Mural of Ellis Island", that pays homage to our ancestors. Unfortunately, the original was never viewed by the general public because it hung in the cafeteria which was off limits. Students from Agassi Prep in Las Vegas assisted in painting the reproduction.
The mural is in 19 canvas panels. It length is 88 feet and its height rangers 1 1/2 to 4 feet. The panels can be displayed on various walls is necessary.
