Walking Tour: Art Underground — Works in the MTA's Arts & Design Collection

ID : 5775   
« back to classes page

This tour offers is a rare opportunity to spend "quality time" with the public art installations throughout our subway system.  The first stop is Times Square, where we will view spectacular murals by Roy Lichtenstein and Jacob Lawrence.  We will continue to explore Arts & Design (formerly Arts for Transit) commissions by Jack Beal, Toby Buonagurio, and Lisa Dinhofer.  Our final stop will be South Ferry, where the Starn Twins (whose sprawling piece, "Big Bambú," dominated the roof of the Metropolitan Museum in 2010) have recently completed "See It Split, See It Change," a site-specific installation featuring floor-to-ceiling glass walls laced with sparkling silhouettes of leaves and trees.  Open your eyes to all that awaits you on MTA platforms and passageways and discover the underground art collection in New York City.
