Curtis Cates and Emily Burnell Petrou present a collection of 60 newly imagined pages from ‘Masterpieces: A Fact-Filled Coloring Book.’ Professional artists of various disciplines, as well as creative nonprofessionals, were recruited to reinterpret the book’s 60 pages, each depicting a famous work of art. The project got started in hallway benefactor style after Cates found the discarded book in his apartment building on the Lower East Side of New York City and got to wondering how a bunch of creative grown-ups would color inside and outside the lines.
