Hard Press Editions announces Marylyn Dintenfass Parallel Park Book
The book critically explores how Dintenfass’ drawings, monotypes and paintings are the genesis for Parallel Park, a 30,000 square feet, site-specific installation.
NEW YORK, N.Y.- Hard Press Editions announces the October 2011 publication of Marylyn Dintenfass Parallel Park. This is the first book to document Marylyn Dintenfass’ 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.

The book critically explores how Dintenfass’ drawings, monotypes and paintings are the genesis for Parallel Park, a 30,000 square feet, site-specific installation, stretching around the four facades of The Lee County Justice Center Parking Garage in Fort Myers, Florida- one of the largest and most transformative art installations in the United States of the past decade.

Marylyn Dintenfass Parallel Park is richly illustrated with more than 175 full color plates, and includes a scholarly essay by Aliza Edelman that provides an innovative and gendered look at the artist’s primary and biographical sources in postwar automobile culture. A complete series of Dintenfass’ automotive themed oils and monotypes from the 2011 exhibition at the Robert Rauschenberg Gallery in Fort Myers is featured followed by a detailed account of the project’s commissioning by Barbara Anderson Hill, Consultant to the City of Fort Myers Public Art Program. A photographic essay of the installation includes incisive commentary by the architect, the printer and members of the construction team. intenfass offers a comprehensive narrative on her artistic vision of Parallel Park’s evocative subject matter and challenging fabrication. Finally, John Driscoll’s interview with public art expert, Jennifer McGregor, places the project in context and discusses the qualities that distinguish Parallel Park.

Marylyn Dintenfass’ work is found in public, corporate and private collections in the United States, Denmark, Israel, Italy, and Japan. More than 25 public collections hold her work, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Cleveland Museum of Art, Detroit Institute of Art, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and The Smithsonian American Art Museum.

Dintenfass has twice been a MacDowell Fellow and has received an Individual Artist Grant from the New York Foundation for the Arts and two project grants from the National Endowment for the Arts. She was awarded the silver medal at the First International Exhibition, Mino, Japan, and the Ravenna Prize at the 45th Concorso Internazionale Della Ceramica D’Arte in Italy. Dintenfass is represented by Babcock Galleries in New York City.

PARALLEL PARK is Dintenfass’ 27th large-scale installation. Among her other installations are projects for the Port Authority Bus Terminal, New York City, Connecticut State Superior Courthouse and the Baltimore Federal Financial Building, Maryland.
