About this item

The subway transports us to all sorts of places, from the concrete canyons of Midtown to a magical medieval castle overlooking the mighty Hudson River at Manhattan's northern tip. Artist Victo Ngai invites us to explore Fort Tryon Park and The Cloisters Museum and Gardens, a branch of The Metropolitan Museum of Art devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe.

Measures 45 7/8 x 29 1/2 inches

The popular graphic poster program was established in 1991 to celebrate the diverse communities that make up the New York region. The commissioned work by painters, printmakers, and illustrators touches upon transit-related subjects and the places that can be discovered using the mass transit system. Posters are randomly displayed in unused advertising space on subway platforms throughout the 468 subway stations and on subway cars and buses. Printed posters are available for sale to the public through the New York Transit Museum Stores. Revenue from sales from the posters help to support the educational and exhibition programs at the non-profit museum. The Program offers illustrators and other artists the opportunity to reach a broader public, and provides the public exposure to incredible artists and visionaries who create a respite of engaging visual art.
