Location: 3rd Avenue/149th Street (IRT White Plains Road Line)
Installation Year: 1996
Notes:

Four mosaic panels on each platform near the fare control.

Jose Ortega captures the energy of the neighborhood with scenes of city life which meld seamlessly with abstract imagery. Circular forms of the sun, earth, and the human face are found throughout the murals. Pre-Columbian and African influences infuse the imagery with a timelessness. Source: cuny.edu
