Muny Terrazzo to be Restored!

The Post's Culture Club blog reports that the beautiful terrazzo floor in front of the Muny's ticket windows that was destroyed earlier this year will be re-installed in the fall after the close of this year's season of shows.  The work of art by Nancy Day was damaged in January of this year by a ruptured water main that heaved the sidewalks in under the Muny's stone portico.

Thanks to the generosity of the Marilyn Schnuck Charitable Trust, the lost artwork originally installed in 1971 will be re-created in its original location.  In the mean time, the design of the terrazzo mural will be featured on the front cover of the Muny programs.
