MetroCards Become A Canvas For NYC Art Show
Exhibition will offer affordable artwork and a chance to help two NYC charities.
Single Fare 2: Please Swipe Again is a unique exhibition opening this Thursday at Sloan Fine Art on the Lower East Side in New York City. The show will feature work created on used MetroCards. Last year artists Jean-Pierre Roy and Michael Kagan staged the first Single Fare exhibition at their studio in Brooklyn. The inspiration for the show came from the notion that the city’s subways and buses allow for a kind of creative interchange unmatched in human history. Single Fare 1 presented over 700 works from artists around the globe.
For Single Fare 2, Roy and Kagan issued an open call for work created on the 7 inch plastic cards. Individual pieces at the show will each be sold for $100. Additionally, a number of works will be raffled off with the proceeds going to charities Transportation Alternatives and the Alliance for the Arts NYC.
The above work is one of sixteen submissions from Jason Das.
