New Library Making A Splash With Public Art
Marissa Gluck reports on the library murals, and the collaboration struck between the city and the Museum of Contemporary Art to show work in the library space:
"...there are now three massive murals, by Fairey, Kenny Scharf, and the artist Retna, helping add life to the otherwise blank and unfriendly walls of the library's five-story parking garage: Fairey's massive 'peace elephant,' Retna's signature calligraphy, and Scharf's nod to animated cartoons."
