XENOBIA BAILEY | Artist Puts the Funk in NYC’s Newest Subway Station:
So proud to applaud the success and accomplishments of artist Xenobia Bailey, fellow Pratt Institute graduate for the award of her first public art commission of the #7 Train station, the MTA’s newest station in 26 years: Xenobia Bailey’s colorful mosaic dome, titled Funktional Vibrations, is a crowning achievement for an artist famous for her crocheted headwear.
Xenobia Bailey’s colorful mosaic dome, titled Funktional Vibrations, is a crowning achievement for an artist famous for her crocheted headwear. Now her first public-art commission, Funktional Vibrations, is on permanent view at the New York Metropolitan Transit Authority’s newest station, 34th Street-Hudson Yards on the 7 line, the system’s first new station in 26 years. The magnificent glass-mosaic rendering of her artwork, among the largest in the system, was commissioned by MTA Arts & Design to enhance the transit experience. The station is huge and gleaming. Right before the turnstiles, there's a gorgeous 2788-square foot mosaic by Harlem artist Xenobia Bailey. BY: Posted: Sept. 20 2015 12:41 AM
