Museum Station Unveiled by Miles Storey
The wraps finally came off the renovation of Museum subway station at a grand opening today. Amidst the coming and going of subway trains and riders, a large group of press and luminaries, penned in by watchful officials, gathered. Mayor David Miller praised the project as “a shining example of what our public spaces can be.” While there has certainly been criticism of the project and its funding, it’s hard to not find the finished columns quite irresistible and fun.
The five different columns represent First Nations, Ancient Egypt, Mexico’s Toltec Culture, Chinese, and Ancient Greek styles. See the columns and more images from the opening after the jump.
