BART Gallery

BART Gallery was a completely unofficial exhibition that Coby Unger and I staged on a subway car during rush hour.

Coby is one of my favorite collaborators, and he’s always ready to make even the silliest ideas come to life, and he does it with gorgeous precision and craftsmanship. (Some of the other funny projects we’ve worked on include laser-etched matzah portraits and a portable hook for me to use on the subway).

When we decided to do this art show, we put out a call and received about 30 transit-themed artworks from people all over the world! We popped them into frames, stuck suction cups on the back, and the rest was history.

We made a video and Instructable about it, and I would definitely do it again.


We made static-cling stickers and stuck them onto the subway cars. Because they didn’t use adhesive, they were easy to remove when we were done.

We hired a cellist for the opening, too. To be fancy.
