Summary Initiated in 1985, the MTA Arts for Transit collection of public art now encompasses more than 275 pieces, creating a dynamic underground museum of contemporary work. In media including mosaic, terra-cotta, bronze, and glass, these artworks are installed in the stations of the New York City subway system, Metro-North Railroad, and the Long Island Rail Road. An update of the highly successful Along the Way, this expanded edition features nearly 100 new works, including Sol LeWitt's Whirls and Twirls (MTA) at Columbus Circle, the Starn Studio's See it split, see it change at South Ferry, and James Carpenter's Sky Reflector-Net at Fulton Street. The definitive guide to works commissioned by Arts for Transit, all pieces are fully described and illustrated in color. Artists represented include Elizabeth Murray, Faith Ringgold, Eric Fischl, Nancy Spero, Maya Lin, Mary Miss, Tom Otterness, Alyson Shotz, Duke Riley, Xenobia Bailey, Shinique Smith, Jean Shin, and the Acconci Studio.
