    Andrew Reid: Public and Private Works

    The Box Gallery will present a selection of works created over the last 30 years by one of the most lauded and prolific public artist in the United States. Andrew Reid's public works can be seen in throughout the United States at major libraries, installed across subway stations, police and fire departments (including Delray Beach and West Palm Beach), courthouses, and civic centers.

    About the Artist: Andrew Reid: Monumental Murals and Narrative Truth
    Muralist Andrew Reid has gotten the jump on the current South Florida mural craze, preceding Wynwood and WPB’s CANVAS Mural Project project by a good 20 years.

    With major commissions still up in various restaurants in South Beach, stores such as Banana Republic, and buildings he painted in the 1990s, the New Zealand born Reid continues to produce and propose radical new designs for public and private spaces.

    One of his most prominent designs is in the West Palm Beach Police Headquarters, the big pink building spanning the block between Clematis and Banyan, which houses a grand mural inside the station Reid created in 1995. He tagged along with the officers and learned about the different jobs and facets of the department before designing the large work, painted on canvas in his studio and then installed in the station’s lobby. His style is influenced by the WPA murals that give an exhaustive narrative, as well as Thomas Hart Benton, Russian propaganda muralists, Picasso and Diego Rivera.
