NEW YORK CITY — A new art installation at the Avenue U subway station in Sheepshead Bay was named one of the best public artworks in the United States, the MTA announced Monday.
Brooklyn Seeds, created by Jason Middlebrook in 2011, is a giant mosaic of flowers that climbs up the wall of the subway station.
It was awarded the stop spot at the 2012 Americans for the Arts Convention held in San Antonio last month, the MTA said.
To see the piece up-close, take the Q train to Avenue U, and view the southbound stairwall leading from the street-level of the platform.
The artwork was commisioned by MTA Arts for Transit as a part of the rehabilitation of several trains on the Brighton Line, the MTA reported.
