The MTA Arts for Transit
program has been commissioning public art for more than 25 years, recruiting big names (Roy Lichtenstein, Nancy Spero) as well as emerging artists. Currently, there are artworks in more than 225 subway stations around the city, with another 70 pieces in progress. Here are ten of our favorites to look out for. If you want more, download the free Arts for Transit
app for your iOS or Android phone, which has a searchable directory of artworks along with directions, photos and podcasts.
