"Our Town" by Boyoun Kim, 2016
Boyoun Kim’s screen print depicts a vibrant skyline view of New York City. Kim said that on her way home formerly Queens, she often enjoyed the view of the city and loved seeing people on the subway. Inspired by the picturesque urban views that are a normal part of city life for New Yorkers, Kim sought to reflect the joy created by our colorful city.

|What's the Story||This poster was commissioned by MTA Arts & Design and was displayed throughout the subway system. The Poster Program commissions artists each year to create artwork that celebrates the city and its transit system. Posters are displayed on platforms throughout the city’s 468 subway stations and sold to the public at the Transit Museum Stores. The Program provides illustrators and other artists the opportunity to reach a broader public, while expressing the people, places, and purpose of the transit network with visual appeal and variety.|
