About

NYC Artist becomes part of the MTA Arts for Transit History

Vast, in three panels

(New York, NY) In May 2012, the MTA Arts for Transit program completes the installation of “Vast” by artist Callie Danae Hirsch at the 105 Beach Street Station on the A/S subway lines in Rockaway Beach.

Commissioned by the MTA Arts for Transit Permanent Art Program in 2008, Ms. Hirsch collaborated with glass fabricator, Erksin Mitchell, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana to translate her seascape design into 15, one-inch thick faceted glass panels cast in epoxy resin. The project, which included the renovation of the 105th Street station, has been three years in the making.

These panels stand on the ocean side of the elevated 105 Beach Street Station allowing the sunlight to lead the viewer’s eye through the stained glass images to the natural landscape of the ocean.

“It is a wonderful honor to have my art become one with the Rockaway Landscape. The ocean is one of my most desirable places to be and my work attempts to bring sea life into our scope of vision. The sea teams with life much of which we can only imagine. I hope ‘Vast’ will encourage viewers to acknowledge and respect the beauty of the sea as well as consider their own participation in the power and wholeness of the natural world.”
