Artwork: "The Return of Spring/The Onset of Winter" (Jack Beal)

Location: Times Square/42nd Street (IRT West Side Line)
Installation Year: 1999
Notes:

Two 7'x20' glass mosaic murals at the 41st St. IRT mezzanine.

The pair of mosaics "The Return of Spring" and "The Onset of Winter" depict various New York City street scenes and were paintings translated to mosaics by Artistic Mosaics Travisanutto of Italy. They were first unveiled to the public at the Gallery of Modern Art in Udine, Italy, in 1999 and 2003 respectively. "The Return of Spring" depicts construction workers and other city dwellers in front of a rendering of an original IRT subway kiosk. The scene depicted in "The Onset of Winter" is a crowd (some with faces of the artist's friends) watching a film crew record a scene of a woman entering the subway, as the first snowflakes of winter come down on the background New York skyline.
