Venue: Manhattan
New York
An Underground Art Gallery on the Upper East Side WITH DANA SCHULZ

Nearly a century after it was first conceived, the Second Avenue Subway has been open for just over two years. This tour will explore the $4 billion infrastructure project, including its long history, architectural design, and engineering feats. We’ll also view the impressive collection of public art from Chuck Close, Sarah Sze, Vik Muniz, and Jean Shin, learning about these contemporary artists, how they were chosen, and the significance behind their work.

PLEASE NOTE: Subway fare is not included on this tour, and you will need to bring your own MetroCard.
