Frescomania: Bay Area and Beyond

Frescomania puts the ancient art of fresco on center stage. Inspired by the Teotihuacan wall painting exhibit at the de Young, it will bring to mind the memory of frescos the public may have seen in the past. Visitors to the gallery will see interpretations of fragments of famous wall paintings as they would look if the originals were taken from around the world and placed in the museum. Projected images will show the fresco process and an interactive element will give a sense of the nature of the medium.
