subt(l)e art

Traveling in the subte (subway) in Buenos Aires, one can see plenty of art fly by as one passes through stations. There are murals in almost every station - some are painted as one piece on panels, other are done as a picture in tiles, and even the tiles themselves are works of art. I'm trying to make a collection of all the art in all the stations, which is taking some time - there are over 60 stations!

It's one of the little bits that make this city terrific, and yet so many zone out when they're on their way somewhere, reading a book, listening to music, or just starting off into space. I want to make them aware, at least. Sometimes just seeing me take a picture of one of these works is enough to draw attention to it, which is kind of my goal.
