9780982232088: Art + NYC: A Complete Guide to New York City Art and Artists

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. Want even more art? Art + NYC offers ideas for extended travel to art-related destinations outside the city, including Pollock's East Hampton studio and a world-class contemporary art museum in the Hudson Valley.

Review:

Like other books in the Museyon line, Art + NYC is the full palette. It takes on its topic with two feet on the ground, and combines everything you need for a primer on the New York City art scene, and crams it elegantly into a book small enough to push into your purse or extra-roomy jacket pocket. The book begins with a concise overview of art in the City, then briefly but complete looks at various movements and how they fit into the local scene. A sidebar introduces the major players of each movement. Next, the book offers profiles of nine celebrated New York artists: Mark Rothko, Robert Rauschenberg, Yoko Ono, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Donald Judd, Cindy Sherman and Jeff Koons. The balance of the book -- its most significant portion -- is given over to detailed maps and listings of galleries in New York City, by area, including Queens, Brooklyn and a section called Extended Travel that takes you beyond the city and into the surrounding areas, including the Hamptons, Montauk and so on. Art + NYC is the bomb. Necessary for art-minded travelers and locals with a desire to immerse themselves in the art scene. The book also offers a great deal to art lovers everywhere who want to feel more plugged in to one of the most exciting and important art cities in the world. --January Magazine
