Marathon-As-River; Miranda Maher's Aerial Map of the Marathon

New York: Nike, 2000.

Map. Lithograph on translucent paper. Measures 10 1/8" x 60".

This artistic interpretation of the NYC Marathon was published by Nike as part of their 2000 "I Run NY" artist series. Maher depicts the marathon route as a river, flowing over the Verrazano Bridge and through several neighborhoods in Brooklyn before rushing over Roosevelt Island and into Manhattan. Along the map, Maher includes short musings on her experience running the marathon, some being personal reflections or memories, while others are more observational. The banks of the river are mapped with considerable details, showing street grids, large industrial sites, cemeteries, and major highways. Neighborhoods are labeled along the route. A beautiful and poetic representation of the physical and emotional journey that makes up the New York City Marathon. Folds as issued, taped at center.
