sarah-sze
The long awaited 2nd Avenue Subway line is finally open, which means a bevy of new public art for our enjoyment. Sarah Sze was one of the first artists chosen for the project in 2009 from a list of 300 artists. The incredible installation spans across 14,000 square feet of tile, depicting elements of New York-sheets of paper, scaffolding, birds, trees, and foliage, which unfold in a composition that follow the energy of the new commuter hub. Each entrance is adorned with a different shade of blue tile, making the commute home seem like an immsersive artistic experience. The tiles installation was made by Sarah Sze Studio, Alcalagres, and Estudio Cerámico.
