What dievca saw on the subway traveling to Master:
MTA Arts & Design commissions five to six artists each year to create transit-related artwork for Poster and Art production. The commissioned work by painters, printmakers, and illustrators touch upon transit-related subjects and the places that can be discovered using the mass transit system. Posters are randomly displayed in unused advertising space on subway platforms throughout the 468 subway stations and on subway cars and buses. You can buy the Art Cards and Posters on http://www.nytransitmuseumstore.com.
Manhattan offered as a submarine or a whale just struck dievca’s sense of fun and made her smile. 🙂
