Happy, happy! Here is the second 2013 subway art card for the Grand Central centennial celebration!  Artist and master printmaker Lothar Osterburg created Zeppelins in Grand Central, a photogravure or photo-mechanical process involving an etched flat copper plate which is printed by hand. After constructing a meticulous small-scale model of GCT (all from memory) Osterburg introduced elegant Zeppelins which dock under the vaulted canopy of stars. The artist explained he re-invented elements of GCT which “…creates a tension between dream and reality, form and function, cleared of superfluous detail. The resulting model becomes an amalgam of fact and fiction.” Osterburg hopes that the work introduces a question of time. Is it the past or the future?  Either way, take a close look at Lothar Osterburg’s art card because you are sure to discover something wonderful!
