Newly updated and on view in the early-20th century American gallery – Jacob  Lawrence’s Summer Street Scene in Harlem is sporting a brand new, top-of-the-line frame.  The frame company that made the frame is Eli Wilner & Company: Master Framers in NYC.

Here is the before shot:

and the after shot:

And here is a photo of the work – back into the American gallery.

You may notice that label next to the work – it points out that there is an OnCell audio tour for this artwork. It’s always great to listen to the audio tour when standing in front of the work – but feel free to listen to it today. Just call 585.627.4132 and use the stop number 220 when prompted.

Stop by this old friend, and see for yourself what a difference a frame makes!
