"It's fantastic what you did with the light man, the bulbs, the reflection, and the firemen, and everything... with the silhouette of the light man walking behind. I love him. It looks great." Tom Petrovich, Manager, Bergdorf Goodman Men's, Fifth Avenue NYC

Alderman's eight panels and translucent printed curtains blend traffic icons with Central Park sculptures in collage with window reflections and architecture, in the neoclassical formal dining room of the Huntington mansion on 5th Avenue, renovated by Ogden Codman in 1913 and later the Stone Room at the National Academy Museum. "My Incandescent Persona" framed in wallpaper scenes of Central Park and National Academy neighborhood.

"Holly Alderman's art combines serious purpose, wit and whimsy in an engaging alchemy. In the multi-layered images of the Cyber Heroes project for the National Academy she makes past and present speak to each other in a lively dialogue. Icons of New York's Gilded Age mingle with references to the city of today, while figures of dotted lights march in front, as if into the future. The effect is visually stunning and thought-provoking." -- Diana Wolfe Larkin, Ph.D., Art Historian

Alderman presented iconic digital mural themes and original technique innovations at the National Academy Mural Fellowship competition in New York. Published by the NA Mural Fellowship committee chaired by Richard Haas, program facilitated by artist Grace Graupe-Pillard. For permission to photograph the living room installation, thanks go to L.
