Subway Art Made Out of Everyday Materials


Photographer Henry Hargreaves has created a new series of art based on the subway systems of 5 major cities, each made out of mundane, everyday materials. I don’t believe they’re available as prints, but wouldn’t these serve as great inspiration for an arts & crafts project with your kids? You could make maps of your neighborhood, or a favorite city you’ve visited on vacation!
