AMNH Subway Art #70 [Detail]

tags: , , , , ,

Since I am having trouble getting out to roam the city and take pictures, I thought I'd return us to the upstairs subway platform at AMNH for a couple days to look at a few pieces that I haven't yet shared with you.

The lighting over this landing makes this mosaic difficult to photograph, unfortunately, since it is quite interesting to look at in real life.

Thanks a lot for all the subway art you post! I haven't commented on any of your posted subway art before and just wanted to let you know that it is appreciated. I live no where near NYC so it is especially nice to be able to enjoy the artwork on your blog.
