A Sculptor Creates a Stop on the Bee Train

By Elaine Louie  New York Times 8/2/12

Christopher Russell, 52, a Manhattan sculptor, is one of 10 artists commissioned by the M.T.A. Arts for Transit and Urban Design program in its latest project to enhance New York subway stations. Almost all of the new works (seven are scheduled for unveiling today along the D line in Brooklyn) are laminated glass windscreens that edge subway platforms above ground. One project, by the artist Andrea Dezsö, consists of stainless steel railings that are part of a transfer bridge and underpass.
