David Bowie Deposed from Broadway-Lafayette Subway Station
For David Bowie, the underground takeover is no more. It’s back to normal.
The Broadway-Lafayette subway station over the weekend was stripped of the vinyl posters that defined the month-long promotion. Through a series of placements on the walls and rafters, co-sponsor Spotify helped highlight the Brooklyn Museum exhibit – “David Bowie Is” – and celebrated the icon’s life in New York City.
The MTA also sold 250,000 limited edition MetroCards emblazoned with Bowie’s various identities. (Aladdin Sane was the most difficult to obtain.)
While the subway stunt ended over the weekend (May 13), the museum installation is on display through July 15.
