Times Square Times: 35 Times is a permenant public artwork commissioned from ceramic sculptor Toby Buonagurio by the MTA Arts for Transit. It is permanently installed in illuminated presentation windows embedded in the shiny new glass block station walls throughout the Times Square - 42nd Street Subway Station in the heart of New York City, USA. It is owned by the MTA New York City Transit.

Times Square Times: 35 Times is comprised of 35 unique, one of a kind sculptural ceramic reliefs created by the artist over five years. The work may be viewed in the Times Square - 42nd Street Subway Station along the 7th Avenue Passage, the 41st Street Corridor, the Broadway Mezzanine and the Subway Entrance at 42nd Street. The station is open to the public twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Times Square Times: 35 Times is routinely viewed by more than half a million subway riders daily.


"Toby Buonagurio's Times Square Times: 35 Times at Time Square 42-nd Street was conceived around three characteristic, conceptual themes emblematic of the energetic vibrancy of Times Square: Performing Arts, Fashion and Street Life - the people, the places, the things - readily recognizable to the average, everyday visitor… whether from New York or New Delhi."

"…Buonagurio's artwork is an unforgettable evocation of the best Times Square has to offer above ground and below. It is an artwork for the ages… and for all ages."
