Sandra Bloodworth is the Director of the award-winning public art program, MTA Arts & Design. Since the program (formerly Arts for Transit) was launched in 1985, its team has turned New York’s century-old transportation network into a first-rate museum, exposing millions of transit riders to art, music and poetry. Within the MTA network, you experience artworks created in mosaic, terra cotta, bronze, glass and mixed-media sculpture. Arts & Design serves the over 8.7 million people who ride subway and commuter trains daily and strives to create a meaningful transportation experience. Sandra joined Arts & Design in 1988 and has served as the Director since 1996. During her tenure, she has shepherded countless vibrant and meaningful works of art installed in subway and rail stations, while maintaining a clear and focused role as the MTA’s voice for quality urban design.
