Street Art II
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Alfred Hitchcock's birth, 14 Hitchcock-inspired mosaics were commissioned for an installation at the Leytonstone tube station, not far from Hitchcock's birthplace. In Boston, the MBTA has been relatively good about building art into the T stations, including poetry etched into the brick floor of the Davis Square station, a wonderful wide-ranging glove sculpture littering Porter Square station, and other art scattered throughout the public transit system. If the city you live in has a public transportation system, let me know about public art in your area.

Thanks to BoingBoing.
