Some of you might remember that late last year, I was selected as one of 14 artists to submit work for one of five New York City subway stations. It was a huge commission with over 140 feet of artwork required. Sadly, I was not chosen as one of the final five artists to install their art in a New York subway station. However, it was a great experience and I was thrilled to have been chosen from a field of almost 600 artists to submit a proposal. The process opened my eyes to the possibilities of creating public art installations in the future and better insight into the process of completing a RFP (Request for Proposal).
I thought I would share an interesting article about the “7 Unexpected Artworks to See in Subway Stations around the Globe” by Isaac Kaplan. My favorite work is Naricssus Quagliata’s The Dome of Light at the Formosa Boulevard Station in Taiwan. The piece consists of over 4,500 glass panels stretching across 100 feet. The work, which shows “the story of human life” through the ages, took over four years to complete. You can continue reading about the other six works by clicking here.
Thank you all for the good wishes and support you gave me for this subway proposal. I could feel all the great Karma that headed my way!
