Underground art

Another joy from the subway art mosaic series - here the downtown platform of the 8th. St stop, with a cameo by Grace Church. The witty mosaics at this station regular spilling beyond their circular frames - often into other circles, like the man torn between hat and dog below. The rainy Grace circle has pendants, too, rain in the sky and an escaped umbrella in a puddle - check them out next time you're there. The series is called "Broadway Diary" (2002) by Timothy Snell. I learned that from a great downloadable brochure called A Guide to Art in the MTA Network - an amazing and growing art gallery, these 500 stations!
