People walk through an almost empty Grand Central Terminal just after train service resumed in New York, Tuesday, Jan. 27, 2015. A blizzard initially billed as possibly one of the worst ever in New York left only moderate snow in the Big Apple — and officials and forecasters red-faced — as New England bore the brunt of the storm Tuesday.

In honor of the Grand Central centennial, we would like to highlight Arts for Transit’s permanent artworkthroughout GCT. First up, artist Ellen Driscoll who referenced the historic constellation ceiling from the main concourse of Grand Central Terminal in her glass, bronze and mosaic relief, As Above, So Below. Located in the Grand Central North passageway, her artwork takes the viewer around the world to the night sky above five different continents, representing myths, civilization, heavens, and the underworld. A close look at any of the faces in the work reveals their diversity, as indeed, the people in these mosaics represent many different backgrounds. However, the artist has altered them to take on the attributes of mythical figures. The work summons the everlasting and the ephemeral, reminding us of our worldly past while we hurry through the station.
As the Grand Central 100th anniversary date gets closer and closer (just 2 weeks away!), AFT will feature some of the grand artwork located in or around GCT. Today, we are happy to present the first of two new posters commissioned for the Centennial. Pop Chart Lab created the beautiful Constellations, which celebrates Grand Central Terminal’s centerpiece, the famous four-sided clock set under a grand vaulted celestial canopy of stars. A beloved meeting place for generations of friends, family and strangers; the clock not only affords a good view of the stunning ceiling but also serves as the site for countless beginnings and endings of life’s journeys. The artist actually witnessed a man proposing to his future wife and included them this piece! Look out for it in this new work in subway stations throughout the city or pick one up for yourself at here.
