Back by popular demand! Hailed as one of the most ambitious contemporary art projects that the MTA has ever undertaken, the new 2nd Avenue Subway art project was created at a cost of $4.5 million. Four artists were chosen beginning in 2009, from a pool of more than 300 high-profile applicants, to treat the stations as their very own and make them into individual installations. Sarah Sze, Chuck Close, Vik Muniz and Jean Shin were selected to transform these new platforms. Our guided-tour will begin at the 96th Street station and end at the 63rd Street station.
