Cathedral Parkway (110th Street)

Christopher Wynter

Migration, 1999 and 2018

Glass mosaic

At As part of the 2018 station improvements, artist Chris Wynter has extended his glass mosaic artwork, Migration, at Cathedral Parkway (110 St) Station. Located near Frederick Douglass Circle, a gateway to Harlem, the artwork was originally installed in 1999 and continues to evoke the spirit of migration, both of people who have found their home in Harlem, as well as the universal search for that place--in one’s heart and in the world--that one feels home. Imagery in the artwork includes houses atop stilts and wheels, ladders, the North Star, footprints, recurring circular patterns (both complete and incomplete), and African symbols of spiritual centering. These objects and a continous pathway weave in and out of large simple shapes throughout the station, threading through the shifting dynamics of passage.
