Times Square Mural, 1994 (installed 2002)
Roy Lichtenstein (American, 1923–1997) - porcelain enamel on steel
This is only a portion of Roy Lichtenstein's 6-foot-high, 53-foot-long mural which you can find in the Times Square subway station. It is a gift of the artist, a native New Yorker, to the city of New York. And it is more than just a kitschy picture. This bright, faux-comic pop art style panel represents a skyline view of a "retro-futuristic" New York City. If you click on the picture, you'll discover a space cowboy looking at the city skyline. But for better (and complete) pictures of the mural, check out www.nycsubway.org. And to learn more about it, visit www.lichtensteinfoundation.org.
