A message from Cathleen:  It was 2011 when I was commissioned to create my own version of a Coney Island subway mosaic in a Manhattan family’s bathroom.  This is when I began my discovery of this New York City’s immense underground museum with the largest collection of mosaics in North America.


I’ve taken thousands of photographs of these amazing works and lead many artists, students and enthusiasts through the vast NYC transportation network to view these under-appreciated works of art.  As a professional mosaic artists, I will be explaining the process of how the mosaics were designed, fabricated and installed, giving participants insight into the complex process of creating a smalti mosaic.  Click on the date above that you would like to attend to see more details and join us for a private and technical look at these masterpieces!


*Please be aware that we will be using stairs to access some of the subway platforms, which can be physically strenuous for some participants.
