Art of the Second Avenue Subway
04/25/2021 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM ET
With the Second Avenue subway the MTA Arts & Design public arts program had its most unique opportunity since its founding in the 1980s. This was a chance to design three subway stations from below the ground up! Part of that $4.5-billion project was commissioning four artists to create artworks that would enliven the new or renovated stations along the extended Q line. On this virtual tour you will discover, among other things, the possible reason why traditional subway tiles are not used at these new stations; and how the artists’ mosaic designs are integrated into the walls of stations throughout the system.
