Most of the artworks at this station are too large to photograph, so I have broken them up into smaller pictures, all of which should be correctly labeled as “details” but I decided to dispense with that formality for this particular station. This particular image is an example of what I am talking about, but it is much smaller than the others, so I can actually fit it into one frame without falling onto the subway tracks in the process (although I did lean backwards over the tracks to get this shot)!
Artemis, Acrobats, Divas and Dancers
Artist: Nancy Spero, 1999. Installed 2004.

These are glass mosaic murals depicting scenes of theater, dance, and orchestra-related subjects, as officially described by MTA.
I have photographed tile artworks from several NYC subway stations now, so far, all are westside Manhattan subway lines, including the West 34th Street/Pennsylvania Station (A, C & E trains), Chambers Street (A & C trains), Houston Street (1 train), Pennsylvania “Penn” station (1, 2 & 3 trains) [subway art archives] and, my favorite subway station of all, the American Museum of Natural History station at 81st and Central Park West (B & C trains) [AMNH archives].
