The New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) announced the latest collection of graphic art placed in subway cars, slated for installation throughout January 2014.

Three new art cards will adorn the panels in subway cars throughout the MTA system. The art cards are seen close-up, by millions of riders throughout the year and provide a pleasing burst of creativity into the daily commute.

MTA Arts for Transit and Urban Design commissions five to six artists each year to create transit-related graphic art that appears on horizontal interior-facing panels in subway cars and vertically oriented spaces on station walls. The MTA initiated the Art Card Program in 1999, modeling it after its curated Poster Program, which began in 1991 as a means of enhancing the station environment.

MTA Arts for Transit popular Graphic program has received various awards and recognition nationally and internationally. Recently, the program received the 2013 communications grand prize for printed materials by the American Public Transportation Association.
