A Station with Art at the Center

“Sky Reflector-Net,” a reflective metal sculpture, will be at the heart of MTA New York City Transit’s Fulton Center in Lower Manhattan when the facility opens next year. The new station will provide improved connections for riders of 10 subway lines, bringing together six existing subway stations. Artist James Carpenter created the 79-foot-high mesh of aluminum panels and glass prisms, set in a stainless steel tracery, to fit inside the conical dome of the structure. It will reflect daylight into mezzanines, passageways, and throughout the station. The $2.1 million sculpture is the largest single work ever commissioned by the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s Arts for Transit and Urban Design program.
