Undersea Undergound

Color, Composition and Creativity

I stopped in my tracks when I came across these beautiful undersea mosaics.  Along with the amphibians and insects featured in my previous post “Underground Art,” these glass and ceramic tile artworks are located under the American Museum of Natural History at the 81st Street subway station.

Still wondering who I met at the gala fundraiser at the museum last week?  If you follow me on Twitter, then you know.  If not, you’ll have to wait for the big reveal!

I love the mosaic’s vivid colors, the detail in each scene, and the artistry.  It’s amazing that static material can evoke movement!

Hon, just imagine you’re scuba diving.
