Gallery Mondays: MTA Subway Fare Evader

subway sculpture 14 street edit

The New York City subway is a gallery in itself. The 14th Street A, C, E, L subway station is no exception.

Tom Otterness’¬†Life Underground¬†is a collection that has intrigued me since I was a little girl. The bronze sculptures are put into some very comical, cartoon-like situations that almost seem human.

This one stood out to me most while coming up the stairs from the L train last Friday. With the latest MTA fare hike, who can blame this guy?
