the underbelly project

"Somewhere in New York City there is an abandoned subway station, unfinished, unused and undiscovered. Starting in 2009 over 100 artists were secretly escorted into the space to create works of art. Each artist painted for one full night. The entrance has since been removed and darkness has reclaimed the station..."
