MTA Arts for Transit: Look Up, Not Down (2005)
Ellen Harvey speaks about her work at the “25 Years of Arts for Transit: Meet the Artists” Panel on November 10, 2010.
You talked about how after you created the work that people keep saying how patriotic your work was due to all of the American flags shown. The work was finally realized almost four years after you took the photos shortly after 9/11. And it was not until after seeing the final work that you realized that you had documented life as it was during a certain point in history. What other occasions have you realized that your work contained a meaning in which you did not see before?
