The Art In Your Subway Elevator And The Story Of How It Got There
La Historia del Arte del Ascensor de Tren y Como Llego Ahi.

This is the story of the Artists Unite-MTA Poster Project, an eight year collective effort to bring art into our subway elevators.
The original display of pictures and posters in the elevators at the 181st and 190th Street
A-train stations played a vital role in bringing our neighborhood together.
When they were removed in 2001, it was a profound loss to the community.
Residents of Washington Heights worked hard to express their dismay to the MTA
and collected more than 3,000 signatures in a few days advocating to maintain a
community presence in the elevators.
