Subway Art

I finally had a chance to see the newly installed artwork by the artist Sol LeWitt at the 59th Street Columbus Circle subway station. Called "Whirls and Twirls (MTA)" the art was conceived by the artist for this spot and was created before he died in 2007. You can read more about it in a New York times article here. It is quite vibrant in person. Have a good week.

It would be fun to have this as a little extra in the daily commute. Your photo captures more of the infectious energy of the artwork than did the "flat" one accompanying the Times article! I was but a few blocks away on Saturday, but did not know of it, will check it out soon.
