Happy birthday to the New York City #subway! Visitors arriving to the Museum via the 81st Street subway entrance are greeted by colorful mosaics inspired by the Museum’s exhibitions and research areas.
Always exciting to see our friends out in the world! Congrats to our board member (and past CT artist) Vik Muniz
on his new mosaics in the Second Avenue Subway! Of course, we’re loving
this mosaic in particular, since it’s of another CT board member: Waris Ahluwalia.
Manhattan’s S train has been turned into the SS train, and many straphangers are pissed. Train seats on one side of the subway car feature the stylized fascist version of the Reichsadler (Imperial Eagle) with the swastika replaced by an Iron Cross. On the other side, the Rising Sun Flag, often associated with Japanese WWII forces. It’s all for a TV show.
I’ve gotten tagged by, like, I don’t even know, three people now??? So I finally got off my butt and did it! (I distinctly remember Shapey and Bry tagging me, but I’m pretty sure someone else did too?? My memory betrays me.)
