Suspended over the main entrance of the new 34th Street Hudson Yards station—New York City’s first new subway station in 25 years—one of Xenobia Bailey’s Funktional Vibrations mosaics glitters in a swirl of color. Located beneath a new urban park and playground, the artwork greets commuters with an energetic interlude to their travels between Times Square and the far west side of Manhattan. Bailey created another hand-crafted Italian glass installation for a recessed dome inside the station. A third mosaic for an adjacent station entrance is under way. The pieces are Bailey’s first public art installations. A fiber artist, Bailey’s design for the sculptural glass ceilings—among the largest artworks in the MTA transit network—began as crochet pieces that were digitized, enlarged, and translated into mosaics by Miotto Mosaic Art Studios.
