23rd Street-Ely Avenue/Long Island City-Court Square

Elizabeth Murray

Stream, 2001

Glass mosaic on walls in passageway connecting the E, V to the G

Elizabeth Murray titled this work Stream, to evoke the feet of travelers as they stream out along the passageway. Murray has shifted from abstraction to recognizable imagery throughout her career and in this work, she created magical forms that reveal her artistic spirit in the vibrant colored mosaics that fill the passageway. Murray also used imagery with her earlier project, Blooming, in the Lexington Avenue and 59th Street station. Here the radiant colors evoke the new day with rising suns and the giant steps being taken, as the organic and joyous shapes provide an uplifting jolt of energy to the commuters streaming past.
