THE SLIP The New York City Street That Changed American Art Forever

by | Read by Melissa Redmond

History • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Narrator Melissa Redmond's appealing voice tells the story of a place long since lost to urban renewal. From 1956 to 1967, the dead-end street Coenties Slip in lower Manhattan was home to a group of extremely talented artists in their formative years, including Robert Indiana, Ellsworth Kelly, and Agnes Martin. Although they varied greatly in their approaches to art, they were always supportive of each other. Redmond's voice is easy to listen to, if somewhat lacking in expression. Her even pacing and gentle tone are perfect for the wistful sense of place that is the real subject of this audiobook. While each artist has been written about extensively as their fame grew, this story of their early careers is unique and fascinating.
