Join award winning mosaic artist Cathleen Newsham for this 4 hour comprehensive tour of Manhattan's stunning subway mosaics.

Do you know there are over 400 mosaics installed on subway platforms in the five boroughs of New York City? Ten years ago, when Cathleen was commissioned to create her own version of a Coney Island subway mosaic in a Manhattan family’s bathroom, she began her discovery of this immense underground museum with the largest collection of mosaics in North America. Cathleen has taken thousands of photographs of these amazing works and lead many artists, students and enthusiasts through the vast NYC transportation network to view these under-appreciated works of art. As a professional mosaic artist she will be explaining the process of how the mosaics were designed, fabricated and installed, giving insight into the complex process of creating a smalti mosaic mural.
