Addressing the formative ideas on mobility and space in her career, this book introduces a broad examination of Dintenfass' commissioned sculpture and paintings, and presents how these art works translate into her monumental site-specific sculpture Parallel Park, located in Fort Myers, Florida. Parallel Park also participates in a contemporary dialogue with the challenges and politics of public art. The book is organized in three sections: an introductory essay by Aliza Edelman, PhD, providing an innovative and gendered look at the artist's primary and biographical sources in postwar automobile culture and rock and roll music; an account by Barbara Anderson Hill (Art Consultant to the City of Fort Myers Public Art Program) summarizing the challenges of negotiating the Parallel Park commission through necessary political and governmental channels in Fort Myers. The book also features a formal interview with Jennifer McGregor, an authority on public art, by John Driscoll, that discusses the urban transformation of Parallel Park through the impact of the artist's vision and scale of the installation. Additional sections of interest in the book provide color plates of the gallery exhibition and extraordinary documentation of the installation and printing procedures for Parallel Park.
