About the Book
The story about one New York artist's passion and how it touched and entire city..one block at a time.
For 6 years this city wide project (IRUBNY) has engaged over 6,000 people in New York neighborhoods to create artwork by rubbing the surfaces of the streets. Here's the story of the urban landscape told through the unique artwork and amazing photography.
Carol Caputo’s career is a collage of award-winning creative projects. For more than 30 years her Illustrations and designs have appeared in magazines and theater productions, on posters and on TV. An early leader in her field, she led the way for a new generation of women artist. Carol is restless and eclectic and she challenges her craft that she learned at the School of Visual Arts as one of its first female recipients of a full scholarship. Her paintings, drawings, sculptures and films have been exhibited at the Art Directors Club, the Society of Illustrators, Lever House, as well as in numerous galleries. There is a primitive and energetic feel to her work that is inspired by her travels in China, India and Europe. This influence can be seen in the bold colors and patterns found in some of her earlier works. But what inspired this New York girl most is New York City.
