Venue: Bronx
New York
10452
WITH LYDIA BRADSHAW, MTA ARTS & DESIGN, AND BRONX ARTIST ROY SECORD

Join MTA Arts & Design for a guided tour of public artworks located at three Bronx subway stations. We’ll visit the iconic “Wall-Slide” by Vito Acconci at 161 Street Yankee Stadium station; the colorful and geometric “Bronx Seasons Everchanging” by Roy Secord at 174-175 Sts station; and “Beacons” by Rico Gatson at 167 St station. Hear first-hand from MTA Arts & Design regarding the process of commissioning artists who create site-specific artworks for the public and communities and from artist Roy Secord about his experience and inspiration for the 174-175th Sts artwork, which reflects the color atmospheres of annual cycles of Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter as well as their transitions.
