Subway Art Blog is pleased to announce that there will be a second “Single Fare” MetroCard art exhibition opening this Thursday. Last year, Single Fare started off with a bang, including over 700 mini artworks by artists from around the world. This year should be no different. The founders Jean-Pierre Roy and Michael Kagan suspect the number of works might hit the thousands and are collaborating with Sloan Fine Art this time around which made it possible to add more exhibition days and gallery hours.
The beauty of this show is that it is as democratizing as the subway itself. They will be exhibiting all works submitted, and each will be sold (if the artist wishes to sell) for the same amount of money–just like the MetroCards bearing the art.
