Overview

Art + NYC is an art-lover's guide to New York City that combines a crash course in 20th- and 21st-century art history with in-depth bios of nine celebrated New York City artists: Jackson Pollock, Andy Warhol, Cindy Sherman, Yoko Ono, Mark Rothko, Jeff Koons, Donald Judd, Roy Lichtenstein, and Robert Rauschenberg. Each segment is written by a leading art writer from publications such as Art in America, Flaunt, and the New York Times. Filled with useful information for both locals and tourists, Art + NYC includes comprehensive neighborhood-by-neighborhood gallery and museum listings, along with studios and other artsy places of interest. In addition, sidebars include the hotels and restaurants that are steeped with history—artist hangouts, residences, and events of infamy. Also included is an extensive index of paintings, sculptures, and public art by New York City artists; detailed maps for 13 neighborhoods; a Q&A with a curator, gallerist, or artist for each NYC neighborhood; and a museum, gallery, and studio directory.
