Subway Art by Riverdale Teacher Featured in New Book
Posted 11/17/2014 04:32PM

A stained glass project for the 225th Street subway station by Nicky Enright, a visual arts teacher at Riverdale, is included in new book about New York's transit art.

The book, New York's Underground Art Museum, by Sandra Bloodworth and William Ayres, was published last week.

Enright's stained glass panels for the 225th Street station, entitled "Universal City," were installed in 2006. In its description of Enright's project, the MTA said: "Through the artwork, Enright encourages commuters to contemplate, if only for a moment, the mystery and excitement of the city and its place in the universe."

Since 1989, artists have created more than 250 artworks for the stations of the Metropolitan Transit Authority, including the bus and subway stations, Metro-North Railroad, Long Island Rail Road, and bridges and tunnels.
