The Cloisters MTA Arts & Design Poster
by Victo Ngai, 2013
The subway transports us to all sorts of places, from the concrete canyons of Midtown to a magical medieval castle overlooking the mighty Hudson River at Manhattan's northern tip. Artist Victo Ngai invites us to explore Fort Tryon Park and The Cloisters Museum and Gardens, a branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe.
Measures 29.5 x 46 inches
|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.|
