"Murals that range in style from graffiti to trompe-l'oeil punctuate the New York experience. Independently, the works are cosmetic, decorative--but together, they offer a narrative of the city and its history." Quest Magazine"Walls in New York sometimes do more than divide space. A few of them are also pages of the city's history writ large -- testament to the shifting civic vision of generations of New Yorkers. In Murals of New York City: The Best of New York's Public Paintings From Bemelmans to Parrish, which features more than 30 large-scale works around the city, the muralist Glenn Palmer-Smith and the photographer Joshua McHugh tutor natives and tourists alike in how these walls -- and a few ceilings -- can best be appreciated." The New York Times "Harried New Yorkers rarely stop and gaze at the murals incorporated into the city's landscape--much less understand the quirky stories and ego clashes that let to the creation of many of them. Artist Glenn Palmer-Smith is trying to change that...accompanied by essays which usually describe moments of conflice and drama in the murals' creation and life span." -WSJ "Glen Palmer-Smith tells the amazing stories behind many of the city's iconic works of public art. With works ranging from Orozco to Keith Haring, the book and its photography capture the works of art still setting the mood long after their initial introduction." The Daily Beast "Murals is the first book to curate over thirty of the most important, influential, and impressive murals found within all five boroughs. The murals featured in this volume act as both an artistic and cultural guide to New York and its citizens over the past 100+years...perfect for art and architecture lovers..." ArtDaily "Murals of New York City presents around 30 notable murals in the City, giving us another reason to get out to explore the world outside our door." Modern Sybarite
"Murals of New York in both its transfixing pictures and its fluent text, decisively captures the vibrancy of this still-wondrous city's under-acknowledged public art." HuffPost "They tour us through five boroughs via century or more of remarkable public art. They [Palmer-Smith and McHugh] show us fresh the beloved and familiar...Thanks to them, we discover our crazy metropolis and learn its patchwork history of strivers and achievers all over again. Lucky us." New York Spaces "In a city where there's always something new, it's a welcome treat to discover novelty in the past." Architectural Digest
