The sensitive perception of a society’s artistic expressions facilitates our comprehension of its ethos, enabling the meaningful communication between individuals and communities, which is the fundamental link that connects human beings. This book explores the spirit of the Mesoamerican civilization from pre-history until the 20th century, interpreting its architectural legacy, both in the planned environments of the public plazas, and in the art that is integrated into structural designs, exemplified by the Mexican mural paintings. The first part studies the open areas defined by substantially symbolic architecture, providing the spatial forum for the spiritual and consequential collective manifestations of the native population throughout the history of Mesoamerica, linking past, present, and future generations. The second part focuses on mural painting, which has been a consistent universal medium for eloquent cultural interaction among Mesoamericans.

From the back cover of the book, quoted in part:"The America Karal Ann Marling (the author) refers to is small-town America during the depression era; in particular those communities that were portrayed in the 1000-odd murals that appeared in post offices around the country under the auspices of the Treasury Department Section of Fine Arts. She goes far beyond an investigation of the murals as art, and 'Wall to Wall America' becomes an intelligent, often irreverent, discussion of popular taste and culture during the depression decade. "

Martha Banta reaches across several disciplines to investigate America's early quest to shape an aesthetic equal to the nation's belief in its cultural worth. Marked by an unusually wide-ranging sweep, the book focuses on three major "testing grounds" where nineteenth-century Americans responded to Ralph Waldo Emerson's call to embrace "everything" in order to uncover the theoretical principles underlying "the idea of creation." The interactions of those who rose to this urgent challenge?artists, architects, writers, politicians, and the technocrats of scientific inquiry?brought about an engrossing tangle of achievements and failures. The first section of the book traces efforts to advance the status of the arts in the face of the aspersion that America lacked an Art Soul as deep as Europe's. Following that is a hard look at heated political debates over how to embellish the architecture of Washington, D.C., with the icons of cherished republican ideals. The concluding section probes novels in which artists' lives are portrayed and aesthetic principles tested.
