In Brooklyn, a piece of public art covers the walls of a passageway that leads from Marlborough Road to Newkirk Plaza station on the B and Q lines.
Until the large mural and mosaic were added in 2012, it was just a dirty and neglected tunnel. The two works of art are united by the theme of flying machines. The mosaic was designed by Juan Carlos Pinto of the Brooklyn Recycle Project, and features materials (broken china pieces, dominoes, shuttered mirrors, beads) that were contributed by members of the community.
