REVEALS Marylyn Dintenfass’ recent series of drawings, monotypes and paintings devoted to gender-bending, society altering, culturally iconic, high-powered, sporty and sexy muscle cars that streamed out of Detroit from the late 1950′s to the mid-1970′s.
DETAILS the stunning convergence of a permanent public art installation with Dintenfass’s progression of changing images and shapes integrated with modern life experiences: ubiquitous automobiles, traffic patterns, tires, and the geometry of movement.
EXPLORES the creative, interdisciplinary process and collaboration of one of the largest and most transformative site-specific installations of the past decade.
AFFIRMS that fine art permanently invigorates urban landscapes and energizes the public. In constant chromatic and textural change, translucency to solidity, opacity to glowing lantern Dintenfass’ Parallel Park transforms something ordinary into something truly extraordinary in downtown Fort Myers, Florida.
