As I See It: An Intimate Look Inside Artist Hunt Slonem’s Residences
Where Art Meets Design was just released.
The marriage of art and design is the subject of painter Hunt Slonem’s amazing new book, which offers a bird’s eye view of the artist’s fantastically decorated and meticulously restored homes, including two Southern plantations.
Slonem pairs vintage furniture and found objects with contemporary art, including works by Alex Katz and Andy Warhol, creating spectacular spaces. Artist and critic Bruce Helander will explore these, along with a pictorial tour of Slonem’s breathtaking 35,000 sq. ft. private studio in Brooklyn, New York.
