Famous Writers and Their Work Spaces Come Together in a Mural – NYTimes.com:

This short piece discusses a mural painted by New York City artist Elena Climent for New York University’s Language and Literature Building. “Completing the mural took 18 months, much of it devoted to researching the rooms, conditions and rituals of each writer’s work.” The mural is 10 feet high by 30 feet wide and depicts the workspaces of six writers who spent at least part of their lives in New York City:

  • Washington Irving
  • Edith Wharton
  • Zora Neale Hurston
  • Frank O’Hara
  • Jane Jacobs
  • Pedro Pietri
