Murals of New York City: An Illustrated Book Talk

Murals of New York, authored by Glenn Palmer-Smith and photographed by Joshua McHugh, is a richly presented collection of New York’s most well-loved and iconic murals. Spanning the five boroughs, more than one hundred years and locations as diverse as federal buildings, public schools, historic bars and street corners, these murals display the vibrant and ever-changing cultural and artistic tastes of New Yorkers in the 20th century. Presenting among the ornate wood paneling and beautiful maritime murals of the U.S. Customs House Collector’s room (usually closed to the public), Glenn Palmer-Smith will discuss the creation, life, and ongoing preservation of these New York treasures. After the talk, attendees will have a chance to explore the Custom House Rotunda, which boasts its own beautiful murals featured in the book.
