'Outlook' is located in the Broadway station along the N/W line of the New York City subway system. There are three different compositions that complete this design. The East Elevation measures 8.5 ft. by 60ft., the West Elevation measures 8.5 ft. by 60ft., and the South Elevation measures 8.5 ft. by 15ft. The project material is hand-painted laminated architectural glass.
‘Outlook’ for the Broadway station is an imaginary, saturated, color-filled landscape that references the past and present of the neighborhood surrounding the elevated station. The laminated glass artwork highlights the native flora in the area, and the deciduous woodlands, ponds, swamps, wetlands, meadows, and conifer forests that were once dominant features in the location. The palette choices for ‘Outlook’ are inspired by the current colors visible in the neighborhood, including those found in the existing architecture, storefronts, restaurants and public spaces. Peters Studios translated original paintings into hand-painted glass to be integrated into the station facades and windows.
This project was commissioned by MTA Art & Design. The original paintings were translated into hand-painted glass by working closely with Peters Glass. Each panel replicates the exact color, composition and brushwork of the original paintings.

Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
