Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0762736658, Paperback)
A unique collection of forty-two outings of artistic discovery along the northeast corridor, this book is for anyone with a curiosity for exploring unusual places of artistic interest. It is both an inspiring armchair read and a practical take-along guide. Each outing has a sense of place, whether as a site for art or an artist, and includes studios, foundries, and workshops, historic artist's colonies, eccentric outdoor monuments, artistic gardens, and landscapes that inspired renowned artists. Driving directions, activities, and nearby attractions are also provided.
Whether following the footsteps of the Hudson River school artists to the magnificent views they painted, touring a vast foundry to observe sculpture-casting first hand, or cavorting with a giraffe, a camel, a swan, and even a unicorn, all made of greenery, readers will gain a true sense of the artist’s space and individual vision. In their search for sites of artistic history or visual appeal, the authors have omitted the more popular tourist spots.
