The Craft of Creating Wall Texts at the Guggenheim

"Go behind-the-scenes with Guggenheim graphic designer Peter Castro and design firm T.E. Black Studio during the wall text installation of "Mystical Symbolism: The Salon de la Rose+Croix in Paris, 1892–1897." Most wall texts at the Guggenheim Museum are applied using silkscreen printing, a process more typically used on fabric or paper. As shown in the video above, paint is pushed through a fine mesh onto the wall, leaving crisp lettering behind."  - Guggenheim Museum
