Artwork: "Trade, Treasure, and Travel" (Margie Hughto)

Location: Cortlandt Street-World Trade Center (BMT Broadway Line)
Installation Year: 1997
Notes:

Ceramic relief tile murals installed (mostly) in the underpass between platforms leading to the World Trade Center concourse.

"I thought about all the different peoples, products, objects, and moneys that passed through this area," Hughto says, "and I envisioned a treasure vault filled with coins, gems, and artifacts-- rich, golden, glowing, and somewhat mysterious." The artist's interpretation of this vision is a complex, glittering panorama of twelve interconnected ceramic tile relief murals in different sizes and shapes, ranging from three to 30 feet in length. The murals are decorated with a panoply of objects symbolizing centuries of worldwide exploration and trade on land and sea....buffalo nickels, ancient coins, keys, natural and mythological creatures, a huge rose compass based on an ancient celestial chart, [and a view of the skyline of Manhattan.] Source: mta.info

"After September 11th, I didn't know for months if it was OK," Hughto says. "When I finally got a look at it, it was like going into King Tut's tomb. There was all this art, and not a scratch on it." Source: syr.edu.
