Weekday Sketchers on the Q Train Thursday


Riding the new Q Line is a ride through a linear art gallery filled with amazing mosaics.   NYC MTA has commissioned some of the best contemporary artists (Chuck Close, Vik Muniz, Sarah Sze, Jean Shin) to create installations throughout the stations.  

Join us on Thursday as we take a ride through this subterranean museum.   We will meet on the Mezzanine level of the 96th St Station.  The mezzanine levels are large, warm and wide making it  comfortable for sketching. We will spend about one hour at each of the four stations from 96th St to 63rd St.
