Color NYC Museums is filled to the brim with iconic settings such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the American Museum of Natural History, the New York Hall of Science, and the Brooklyn Museum, among many others.
Through its 36 beautiful black-and- white line drawings and detailed descriptions, “Color NYC Museums” masterfully highlights what makes its many cultural institutions so special.
Jake Rose is a native of New York City and a recent graduate of Drew University, where he majored in history and minored in American studies.
Through his passion for architecture and photography, Jake was inspired to create the Color Our Town series of coloring books, depicting the beauty and unique character of neighborhoods and small towns across America through their recognizable locales and historic landmarks.
Jake’s process – and what makes the Color Our Town series so unique – begins with his multiple collaborations with artists from around the world, who take Jake’s own photographs and translate them into exquisite line drawings, each accompanied by Jake's in-depth historical descriptions.
With Jake's seventh and newest book, Color NYC Museums, Jake takes the reader on a grand tour of museums widely celebrated and beloved by the general public, as well as those whose walls and contents are only known to the true art aficionado (with a few stops in between).
