Name Plaque Union Square Project, 2000 or Framing Union Square, 1998 according to MTA Website
Glass, Enameled Steel, and aluminum
By Mary Miss In collaboration with Lee Harris Pomery Associates/Architects
This artwork incorporates original decorative mosaics and terra-cotta reliefs that were in the station and covered over by a series of renovations. These reliefs along with other remains like pipes are framed in red metal squares and also use reflective steel in places giving a mirror effect for slightly different effects. The exhibit is all over the walls of the station complex but the most noteworthy portion is installed in one of the Lexington Avenue Line mezzanines consisting of walls originally on the exit side platforms for the local tracks with 14 Street written in a terra cotta eagle (identical to those at 33 Street), the portions of walls that are visible are sequential going down slowly showing fewer and fewer portions of the eagles intact.
