We are pleased to announce a special book-signing day for the recently released book Yuko Nii Art & Achievements. This book crowns the recent retrospective of her work.
Besides being a magnificent artist, she is also a writer and this book contains both a summary of her artistic career and in her essays many of her philosophical and sometimes humorous observations of life.
Yuko came to America from japan in the mid 1960s. She attended Pratt institute graduate School from 1966 to 1968. She was already at that time a master artist. Later, by dint of hard work and perseverance she was able to acquire a major New York and national landmark building and transform it into a recognized New York art institution that has now lasted 20 years.
This book is an important document about this outstanding individual and demonstrates how one can, if motivated, achieve phenomenal results.
