Dear Friends, the MTA-AU Subway Eevator Poster Project is unique to the MTA (Metropolitan Transit Authority) system. We are one of the city's only communities who have negotiated, after much community involvement and organizing, (full story to be told another time) a program where the MTA allows a local arts organization (Artists Unite) to select works of art by local artists to be placed in the public subway system.Here are the winning images from the 2015 contest that will be placed in the 190th and 184th streestations subway elevators. The posters will be up for about a year and viewed by thousands of people both from the community, city and tourists visiting the Cloisters).
We had over 200 interesting, varied and beautiful images and it was very hard to choose just seven.
Thank you all who submitted your work. Rosa
