As greater numbers of New Yorkers continue returning to the subway amid the MTA’s #TakeTheTrain campaign, and the subway system breaks multiple pandemic-era ridership records per month, MTA Arts & Design today announced the unveiling of new digital art pieces and photographic exhibitions designed to enhance the transit experience, at Fulton Center, 42 St-Bryant Park and Atlantic Av-Barclays Center.
“Arts & Design is thrilled to launch three new commissions to welcome our riders’ return to the transit system,” said Yaling Chen, Deputy Director of MTA Arts & Design. “In this time of global crisis, artists are reshaping their thinking and practices as a tool for reflection, connection and documentation. The playful cyberscape in the digital artwork at Fulton Center touches upon our amplified reliance on virtual platforms. The photographic exhibitions seeks conformity from nature surrounding us. We hope each work will bring a moment of connectedness and joy as the riders resume their daily commuting ritual.”
