Throughout the expansive station, subway commuters will view large-scale posters of drawings by Ed Ruscha; photographs by Cindy Sherman, Nan Goldin, and Andreas Gursky; architectural drawings by Frank Lloyd Wright and Mies van der Rohe; design objects by Charles and Ray Eames and William Morris; and media works by Doug Aitken, Pipilotti Rist, and Bruce Nauman.
