MARYLYN DINTENFASS PARALLEL PARK is the first book to document this internationally-known artist’s most recent work that reveals her life-long love affair with automobiles, especially the culturally iconic high-powered, sporty, sexy muscle cars that streamed out of Detroit from the late 1950’s to the mid-1970’s. This monograph is the story of Marylyn Dintenfass‘ most recent achievement: one of the largest and most transformative art installations in the United States of the past decade. The book expands upon Dintenfass’ drawings, monotypes and paintings on the automotive theme and critically explores how they are the genesis for this site-specific installation—the latest in a long series of such works—entitled Parallel Park in Fort Myers, Florida. Parallel Park is a major new study on the artist, a review of popular culture and gender issues in contemporary art, and an invaluable public art reference.
