June not only brings us an exciting crop of new outdoor art installations, but we still have several from our May list that will be up for another month or more. Here are 17 installations that should not be missed this month:
17. 190th Street Subway Tunnel
We included the 190th/191st Street subway station in our roundup of May’s top street art installations and highlighted it before as one of New York City’s deepest subway stations. Last month, the New York City DOT’s beautification project, which also includes the walkway adjacent to this particular station, took on the tunnel. Five artists were selected by the Department of Transportation and the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance. Each artist was given two 200 foot sections of the wall to paint. In the end, 900 feet of tunnel was transformed.
