Underground Art: On Display in the Subway

Sunday, August 5 | 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

$40 / $35 for Museum Members
The New York City subway system’s 400-plus stations make it the largest in the world; with hundreds of art installations scattered throughout those stations, it’s also one of the world’s largest public art galleries. Join guide Justin Rivers on a journey through time and space, telling the story of the NYC commuter — from Roy Lichtenstein’s subway rocket to the future down to Robert Fulton’s first steam ferry  — all told through the art we pass in the transit system every day.
