Here is a cool idea - on what to do with all the used Metrocards from recent trip to New York!

SINGLE FARE 4 is a an art show of art created on used NYC Subway cards created by artists Michael Kagan and Jean-Pierre Roy. Opening Sept 16th at Highline Stages - 441 W 14th Street in NYC. Each of the MetroCards will be available for $100 with sales benefiting the New York Academy of Art.

I have submitted ten cards to this exhibition. Five of them are close up oil portraits and another five are pencil drawings inspired by Rodin's sculptures. I never paint that small, but surprisingly it was a lot of fun. I think I enjoyed the compact size and short time frame of working on each of the tiny pieces.
