With With Lydia Bradshaw, MTA Arts & Design, and Artists Roy Secord and Rico Gatson
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 and “Room of Tranquility” by Helene Brandt 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 from the artists about their experiences and inspirations. Roy Secord’s project reflects the color atmospheres of annual cycles of Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter, and Rico Gatson celebrates the energy and spirit of selected individuals, who provide inspiration to all.
