The New York City subway system has a great public art collection that includes photography, stained glass, and of course mosaic art. On the last page of this article there is a link to a directory of the art in the subway, but for now we will focus on a small sample of the mosaics.

One of the large mosaics at the Times Square and 42nd Street station is 7' x 20'. The tesserae are smalti. A close up of a portion of the mosaic is on the next page.
