Church Avenue

Louis Delsarte

Transitions, 2001

Glass mosaic on platform walls

The series of glass mosaics, created by artist Louis Delsarte, reflect the color, energy, and daily life in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn where the station is located. Home to many residents of Caribbean descent, the West Indian-American Day Parade is prominently featured alongside other neighborhood sights and scenes. "This neighborhood has had many different groups moving in and out over the years. Now it's predominately Caribbean, and I wanted to freeze a moment in its history," says the artist. In the section called "Avenue of Churches" Sunday morning rituals are observed while in "The Neighborhood," children are shown happily jumping rope on the area's sidewalks.
