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

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

Ceramic relief tile murals. "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.
