This Subway Station In NYC Installs Beautiful Mosaics Of Dogs After Renovation

Published 11 months ago

Taking the subway to work every morning is no fun – staring at the train tracks and blank walls while waiting for your train can get bleak fast. That’s why the MTA Arts & Design program decided to liven up the newly renovated 23rd Street F/M subway station in New York City with some beautiful mosaic murals.

The author of the murals is William Wegman – an American artist, well known for his beautiful portraits of his pet Weimaraners. The artist photographed the dogs and the highly detailed mosaics were made by German artist Mayer of Munich. “I wanted to create portraits of individual characters, people who you might see next to you on the platform,” said William.

We’re sure these mosaics will make the commuters’ trips a little bit brighter! Check them out in the gallery below.

One day this guy just kind of figured "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending around the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness, so if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
