INGO FAST ILLUSTRATION: ON AND OFF THE BOARDWALK

February 17, 2016

Ingo Fast was commissioned by the MTA Arts for Transit program in New York City to illustrate seventeen glass panels which were installed at the Beach 67 Street "Arverne by the Sea" train station in Rockaway, Queens. Ingo’s panels, fabricated by Glasmalerei Peters in Germany, reflect the history and spirit of the beachside community.

Below are a few samples of Ingo’s sketches and artwork for the project, which took a total of three years from start to finish. “The installation is designed to last a century,” he remarks. “Will we still have trains running on rails in a hundred years..?”
