Description

The last days of the Hewitt building before it was officially closed and demolished. The Hewitt building was designated as painting studios (+ 6th floor main building). I worked as a painting technician there. We had decided to let the students go wild, maybe a bit too wild. Individual studios were respected, but the common areas were completely torn apart. It marked the end of a chapter for myself, and many of the painting students at Cooper Union. The new building would soon be built, and Cooper Union would no longer be able to keep it's promise to give students a free education.
