Artwork: "Times Square Mural" (Roy Lichtenstein)

Location: Times Square/42nd Street (IRT West Side Line)
Installation Year: 1994
Notes:

"Times Square Mural, a 6-foot-high, 53-foot-long panel that revisits the history of New York transportation.... The first panel shows a portion of an arch ... rendered to resemble tile and masonry, the materials of the 1904 subway. The next arch metamorphoses into a steel girder, distilling the Machine Age of the 1930's, when metal gained popularity as a symbol of modernism. Streaking through the arches is .. a winged spaceship, suavely streamlined in the period manner." Source: nytimes.com 9/1/2002.

Lichtenstein's other New York City mural, "Mural With Blue Brushstroke" can be seen in the atrium of the Equitable Building, Seventh Avenue at 51st Street.
