Field Trip!!

Since we have to design a funerary monument, what would be better than visiting a cemetery and seeing typical gravestones, simple and grandiose alike? Nothing! So that’s exactly what we did.

Yesterday during studio time, my professor took my class over to an old cemetery on the North Side called Nisky Hill Cemetery. We walked around for a while, noticing little details and searching for some inspiration. Even though it was really cold, we had a lot of fun!


A large grave marker with an urn at the top.


A gravestone with interesting carving.


An obelisk at the center of a private family plot.


Flat grave markers and a statue in another family plot.


A war memorial.


Another mausoleum. You could walk right up to them and look inside the locked doors.
