Welcome to New York - MTA Arts & Design Poster
Welcome to New York!
by Dave Calver, 2005
In his drawing "Commuters," Dave Calver captures the energy and elegance of New York City, where everybody has a Very Important Date. Unlike Alice's encounter with the White Rabbit, when New Yorkers head underground, their journey isn't make-believe, as they hurtle through tunnels to get to work and play.
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.|
