Brooklyn’s Avenue P stop off the F Train will soon welcome a new MTA Arts & Design installation: 28 new laminated glass panels, created by artist Jackie Battenfield, will grace the stairways on the ground platform. The first seven panels are ready for installation now.
The Brooklyn-born artist is known for her luminous paintings and prints, with a focus on the most abstract qualities of landscape, like storms, clouds, brush fires, water ripples, trees and flowers. Also, check out more artwork commissioned by the MTA, including examples of some of original subway art, dating back to the 1980’s.
