Alfred D. Crimi (1900-1994) was an Italian American New York City based muralist and painter. He painted for the Works Progress Administration and continued to paint throughout his life, exhibiting at museums and galleries throughout the city. In addition to creating art, Crimi also was active in the artistic world through teaching art and working with organizations that promoted artists. His correspondence, images of his art, lectures, art catalogs, clippings, writings, and other ephemera document his life and art interest in a wide variety of subjects, including religion, nature, still life, and multi-dimensional works.
