Delightful Sculptures Underground

Life Underground (1998) is a permanent public art installation at the 14th Street - 8th Avenue Station (ACEL trains) created by Tom Otterness. The installation is a series of whimsical miniature bronze sculptures depicting cartoon like characters showing people and animals in various situations, and additional abstract sculptures. The delightful sculptures are scattered throughout the station platforms, stairs, benches and passageways. Otterness said the subject of the work is "the impossibility of understanding life in New York" and describes the arrangement of the individual pieces as being “scattered in little surprises.”
