Remarkable Photography Process Captures Carl Peters Murals in Rochester


We’re proud to be a part of the Memorial Art Gallery of the University of Rochester’s day-long symposium this Sunday with the screening of our our new film “Enough to Live On: The Arts of the WPA.” 

This screening is part of the new exhibit Art for the People: Carl W. Peters and the Rochester WPA Murals.

217 Films collaborated with the Memorial Art Gallery to photograph and digitize two historic murals painted by Peters. “Life of Action” and “Life of Contemplation” are showcased in this new film, which includes not only the finished works but also some of the sketches Peters created as his ideas were formed for these important works. 

Footage from the film featuring these murals and the remarkable photography process used to capture them can be viewed at this link.
