A New York Walkabout, Indoors, in Wallpaper Scenes

Holly Alderman wallpaper Central Park Cyber Heroes of New York National Academy Mural Fellowship"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."

"Holly Alderman's art combines serious purpose, wit and whimsey
in an engaging alchemy. In the multilayered images of her
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 formed 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 and poet

Alderman's innovative original format for mural design for 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, blends walkabout traffic icons with Central Park sculptures and Bergdorf window reflections in transparent collage, composed in cyber space in digital layers.
