Subway Sketch Night: Redbird Edition

November 21, 2019 | 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$15 / $10 for Museum Members

Join us for an evening of drawing at the New York Transit Museum, with an 80s and 90s twist! Presented in conjunction with our upcoming exhibition, Reign of the Redbirds, come celebrate the iconic Redbird subway cars that blazed through New York City from the 1960s through the early 2000s. Hosted by New York City-based illustrator, James Yang, the evening will begin with an introduction to Yang’s work. Following the conversation, explore the Museum and draw inspiration from bygone days in our 1936 decommissioned subway station and vintage subway cars.


                     All ages and skill levels are welcome. Sketch boards, paper and pencils will be provided, or you may bring your own art supplies (pencil and water based marker only, please).

Your ticket includes one beer provided by Coney Island Brewery. Additional drink tickets will be available for a cash-only donation of $5 each.

Photography and video recording are permitted at the Transit Museum. However, selfie sticks, external lighting, tripods and stands may not be used. All photographs taken are for personal use only and permission to photograph may be revoked at any time.
