Philip Ashforth Coppola drawing in a subway station as a train goes by behind him.

For four decades, Philip Ashforth Coppola has meticulously documented the New York City subway system in a series of extraordinary drawings, detailing the historic mosaics and ornamental designs found there. His drawings celebrate the power of intense observation and highlight the work of the artists and artisans who built the subway more than a century ago. Now, a new book from Princeton Architectural Press brings together Coppola’s intricate ink drawings with anecdotes he assembled through painstaking research to uncover the history of what is rightly called New York’s largest public art work, its legendary subway system. Join Coppola, co-editors Jeremy Workman and Ezra Bookstein and Senior Curator Amy Hausmann at the Transit Museum to celebrate the launch of One Track Mind: Drawing the New York Subway with a screening of the documentary short of the same name, a conversation, and a book signing.
