Co budeš dělat

The New York City Subway is not just a public transit system; it houses a lot of historical sites, hidden gems, and important artworks. Did you know that there are over 300 NYC subway stations with public works of art? Do you know where the first subway line was located? How did the immigrants of NYC in 1900 use the subway? Let me take you on an unforgettable tour of the subway which will change your view of being underground. We will start by discussing the history of the New York Subway system that was started in 1904. Through the tour, we will see original mosaics and terracotta tiles along with public art works that were commissioned by the MTA. The Metropolitan Transit Authority launched the MTA Arts & Design program in 1985. - 2-2.5 hours long (depending on trains) - See the secret City Hall Station - View historical mosaics and contemporary public artworks - Visit a variety of stations on different lines - Start in the East Village - End in the Upper East Side

Hello! My name is Caitlin. I have a Bachelor's degree in Art Education and I was a high school art teacher for four years. I spent 3 years working as a tour guide at Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater house and now I'm hosting tours about public art in NYC. When I moved to New York City, I immediately fell in love with how much public art and culture was on display. I was pursuing my Master's degree in Art Business when I decided to focus on cataloging public art and realized there was a lot to see underground. I became inspired to share the artwork with locals and tourists alike. I created my own route through Manhattan to showcase some of the original mosaics and terracottas from 1904 all the way to contemporary works that have been placed in the stations last year.
