Subway Art of NYC: A LIVE ZOOM Presentation by Oscar Israelowitz

This exciting tour will take us to New York City’s glorious subway stations, some of which contain stained-glass skylights, brass chandeliers and Guastavino tile arches. Other stations feature ornate terra-cotta art work designed as early as 1904. Some stations highlight contemporary sculptural designs of little brass people sitting on benches or decorative mosaic tiles designed in the early 20th century. We conclude our tour with a visit to an inclined elevator near the High Line and Jacob Javits Center at the Hudson Yards.

This talk will be conducted on Zoom and will be free of charge. Registration and internet access are required to attend. Register below to receive emailed information on how to access the discussion. Registration closes at noon, January 11 and the access link will be emailed that afternoon.
