West Farms Square-East Tremont Avenue

Naomi Campbell

Animal Tracks, 2004

Faceted glass in platform windscreens

Naomi Campbell's facated glass windscreen panels feature animals in a variety of postures and settings. The viewer notices complex compositions with layers of color and texture that place the animals in a lush settings. The location of the work at the West Farms Square-East Tremont Avenue station is not coincidental; nearby is the world-famous Bronx Zoo. The artist says that she considers Animal Tracks to be an integration of her past involvement in animal sciences with her art and "a step toward the unity and community feeling paramount to our steps in the future." Animal Tracks serves as an introduction to the zoo to visitors just arriving at the station, and a reminder of the trip to those heading home.
