Product Description
New York City Notecard Folio
In the hearts and minds of people worldwide, New York City is more than just the most populous city in the United States. Rather, it’s the very capital of the planet—home of the United Nations and the New York Yankees, the Statue of Liberty and the bright lights of Broadway. It’s also home to over eight million people, who need to get from one place to another daily throughout the five, wide-ranging boroughs. Enter the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, whose subways, trains, buses, bridges, and tunnels provide the pulsing circulatory system for this living, breathing metropolis.

Not content solely with the utilitarian nature of its role, the MTA also seeks to give the traveling public a serving of beauty on the side. MTA’s Arts for Transit program commissions five to six artists each year to create artwork that celebrates the city and its transit system. The art is made into posters that are displayed on platforms throughout the city’s 468 subway stations and are sold to the public at the New York 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. Over the years, these artists have created a collection of inspired, New York-centered art. This folio features the work of two of these talented art-ists—Sylvie Daigneault and Raúl Colón—both of whom have helped add extra shine to the Big Apple.

Contains five each of the following notecards:
Bird’s Eye by Sylvie Daigneault, 2006
Empire Express by Raúl Colón, 2001
