MTA Arts & Design



Arthur Gonzalez

The Discovery, 1990

Bronze sculpture on interior overpass wall

Arthur Gonzalez has created a monumental serial artwork with large-scale bronze figures that are located at three stations on MTA Metro-North Railroad's Harlem line. The work uses the themes of time and travel as the central focus. At Crestwood, the sculpture Discovery is a bronze figure of a girl in a boat who holds a compass with the cardinal directions, evoking themes of travel and exploration. (See Fleetwood and Tuckahoe for the other two works in the series.)
