“Rare Oil Painting/Recent Commission of Original Penn Station by East Village Artist Patricia Melvin to debut at Penn Station Event at ER Butler, December 13th. Rare in that few, if any, exist.”

“On December 13, the Rebuild Penn Station movement was launched at a Atelier & Co. and E.R. Butler & Co. Patricia Melvin, a noted Plein Air painter from the East Village, recently completed the painting which tracks a famed WW 2 era Black and White photograph taken from the roof of the New Yorker Hotel. In working to create this image in daylight Patricia was allowed access to the roof of the New Yorker Hotel, albeit today’s cityscape differs considerably(see second attachment).” – from publicity material for “Rebuild Penn Station” launch party at Atelier & Co.
