MTA Arts for Transit and Urban Design recently launched the officially licensed app that provides comprehensive information about the wide variety of permanent artwork installed throughout the subway and rail system in New York:
- Find artwork listed by line or by artist
- Get turn by turn directions to great installations
- Listen to podcasts
- See photos and more…
The MTA’s Arts for Transit program, founded in 1985, has public art installations in 236 subway and commuter rail stations, from Long Island to Westchester. The free app, available for android phones and iPhones, will offer podcasts and video clips describing the art and the artists, as well as step-by-step walking directions to artworks in a handful of stations.
The goal of this is that the public owns it,” said Arts for Transit director Sandra Bloodworth. “This is their collection and they can take it with them when they go.”
