A white tiled subway wall, bearing various stickers (Locksmith, DADA, No Money Down, etc), painted construction instructions and graffiti (no war, F.D., etc). Along the bottom edge is a black and yellow striped diagonal band.
Gallery Label: 
The terse construction instructions and arrows indicating where work should be done evoke the 1990s and early 2000s when the New York City subway stations were undergoing extensive renovation, often including art work. The stickers and graffiti comments, on the other hand, reflect current events of interest or concern to subway users.
