New England Mosaic Society
Sunday, April 7th: PART 2 - Outer Boroughs and Off the Beaten Track
10:00am-6:00pm Private tour for the New England Mosaic Society of New York City's Manhattan Subway Mosaics with Cathleen Newsham
The mosaics featured on this tour are rarely seen by visitors to New York City, but locals who commute from the outer boroughs of Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx experience their beauty every day. If you have already taken my Manhattan mosaic tour, or you want the two day Grand Mosaic tour, sign up for this in addition to the Saturday tour.
Do you know there are over 400 mosaics installed on subway platforms in the five boroughs of New York City? Eight years ago, when I was commissioned to create my own version of a Coney Island subway mosaic in a Manhattan family's bathroom, I began my discovery of this immense underground museum with the largest collection of mosaics in North America.
I've taken thousands of photographs of these amazing works and lead many artists, students and enthusiasts through the vast NYC transportation network to view these underappreciated works of art. As a professional mosaic artists, I will be explaining the process of how the mosaics were designed, fabricated and installed, giving fellow mosaic artists insight into the complex process of creating a smalti mosaic.
As a member of the New England Mosaic Society, I am offering a private discounted tour for fellow members and their guests. Not a member? Click here to find out more and join.
The cost for my tour is normally $75 per person, but for New England Mosaic Society members and their guests I'm discounting the cost to $65 per person. There is a minimum of 10 people to hold the tour, and a maximum of 16, so sign up today and join me for a private and technical look at these masterpieces!
There will be a one hour lunch break, but you may also want to bring a snack.
