Since 1985, MTA Arts for Transit and Urban Design has commissioned over 250 permanent art installations for the more than 8.5 million people who use the New York City Subway, Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North Railroad each day. The reach of this New York public art program spans over 5,000 square miles. We produce art posters, art cards, photography and live musical performances in stations. We also play a role in design. We influence everything from station gates, windscreens, plazas and architecture to vending machines, help points and subway car design.
We currently have more than 50 amazing new projects in the works and can’t wait to unveil them!
