Beach 90 Street
Surf Station 90, 2011
Michael Miller's faceted glass panels celebrate the adventure of surfing, which is appropriate for the location, B. 90th Street, which is a City of New York designated surfing beach. Miller created a series of paintings in vivid, bold color reminiscent of 60's surf posters and music album covers, that evoke the mood of sitting inside a wave and looking toward shoreline, or the splash of the sea, or figures on a surfboard. His work is expressive and energetic in its line and movement, the perfect start or finish to a day at the beach, and a welcome burst of color to commuters in this Rockaway neighborhood.
The expressive nature of faceted glass has been maximized to use optical effects and hand painting to bring Miller's artwork to life. As construction progresses, additional panels will be installed on the south bound platform of the station.
