On the Wall Named Outstanding Academic Title

On the Wall: Four Decades of Community Murals in New York City has been chosen as a 2009 Outstanding Academic Title from Choice.

This collection of neighborhood art by Janet Braun-Reintz and Jane Weissman collects 150 color images and offers an aesthetic perspective on New York's community murals in a lively and perceptive history.

 These outstanding works have been selected for their excellence in scholarship and presentation, the significance of their contribution to the field, and their value as important--often the first--treatment of their subject. Choice Outstanding Academic Titles are truly the "best of the best."
