Murals of New York City: A Book Talk

Murals of New York City is the first book to curate over 30 of the most influential and impressive murals found within all five boroughs. From the Victorian sensibilities of the early 1900s to the graffiti-inflected art of Keith Haring, these  iconic artistic treasures act as a cultural guide to the City and its citizens over the past century. Author and artist Glenn Palmer-Smith—who restored the murals at Café Carlyle and Bemelmans Bar—will share the lively stories of those who commissioned and created these works of art, as well as those exceptional circumstances by which many have been preserved.
