Subway Art - 81st Street Station

Subway Art  - 81st Street Station

Entitled "For Want of a Nail", named after the old proverb, it addresses the interconnections of entities that are as vast as a galaxy and as small as a single cell. Using ceramic tile, glass tile, glass mosaic, bronze relief, and granite as primary materials, the design team depicted the evolution of extinct, existing and endangered life forms — from single celled organisms to the towering T. rex dinosaur.
