This exhibition is organized by the New York Transit Museum with work from a competition jointly organized by the Museum and the Architectural League.
Grand Central Terminal has always captured the imagination of artists and architects. To celebrate the Terminal’s Centennial, the Architectural League and the New York Transit Museum hosted a drawing competition for architects and designers to capture or re-imagine the New York City landmark. Twenty winners (from 109 entries) were featured in a special edition Moleskine sketchbook–available at Transit Museum Stores–and are now on view in this exhibition. The drawings, ranging from the whimsical to the diagrammatic, from charcoal sketches to computer-generated fantasies, form a collective portrait of this New York icon.
