Artwork: A Trip Up The Bronx River (Daniel Del Valle)

From nycsubway.org

Location: 174th Street ยท Installed: 2004

Various panels that represent a trip up the Bronx River and visits to important sites along the way, such as the Bronx Zoo and the Botanical Gardens.

"The Bronx River is an artery that flows from the South Bronx up to Westchester County. It crosses through many neighborhoods, parks, and passageways. For the last several years the Environmental Protection Agency has been making efforts to restore the river-- cleaning and preserving the landscape for the community to enjoy. My work is a representation of a group of people taking a canoe ride up the river, visiting famous sites like the Bronx Zoo and the Botanical Gardens, and passing through Bronx neighborhoods. It also represents events that have become traditions in the Bronx such as the Golden Ball Festival. In my representation people take a canoe ride up the Bronx River, make masks, draw outdoors, plant new trees, and clean up the environment. Not everyone can take a radical trip on the river to see these sites but the 2 and 5 trains allow people to travel to these locations. I have designed graphic floral motifs for the niches that are situated on the outside of the train platform. They represent the simple reflections of nature that surround us."-- Daniel Del Valle.
