Read more about the AMNH tile artworks and see the AMNH tile artworks photographic archives — with all the animals identified.

Thus ends the AMNH subway art series. In short, I photographed all of the tile mosaics (uptown-bound platform, entrances and stairways), several bronze fossil casts (downtown-bound platform), and one or two floor tiles (uptown platform). There is plenty more to see and photograph there, however, so don’t think you’ve seen it all. Further, many of these mosaics are fun to touch, too, which is part of the fun of seeing these works in real life. I hope you enjoyed this collection of images as much as I enjoyed taking them and sharing them with you!

I will present another the tile mosaic artwork from another NYC subway platform for you to enjoy beginning tomorrow, so stay tuned to see which one I chose!
