Many artists sketch while commuting, passing the time and honing their skills. Drawing the human figure is a starting point for many art students, and subway riders provide an endless parade of figures and characters for sketchers who are quick enough to compose a portrait before their subject moves.
Transit Sketches features work by six artists – Ebony Bolt, Marvin Franklin, Naomi Grossman, Joseph Solman, Amy Tenenouser, and Hank Virgona – who spent years filling sketchbooks during train rides across New York City and the region.
This is free exhibit is open to visitors from 11:00am – 6pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
