Due to popular demand, we are bringing you an encore presentation of our Art in the NYC Subway talk led by Untapped New York’s Chief Experience Officer Justin Rivers! In this talk, you will go on an in-depth tour of New York City’s subway art tapestry. This talk will focus on the newest art in the system including pieces on the Second Avenue Q extension and stunning mosaics in The Bronx. This second presentation of Untapped’s updated NYC Subway Art talk expands on in-person walking tour and is being presented for all those who couldn’t make our first back in February.
