This summer, over 100 artists from around the world contributed to ‘The Underbelly Project,’ a project in which artists were asked to (illegally) create large-scale works on the walls of an abandoned New York subway station.  You can read about the project in Jasper Rees’s article for the New York Times, “Street Art Way Below the Street.”
