Port Authority Bus Terminal


Color-Coded Art Installation Unveiled At Port Authority

July 17, 2008

As part of the transformation of the area around the Port Authority terminal, a colorful new work of art was unveiled Thursday.

The work is one of the largest public art projects in the terminal's history.

The exhibit labels fruits and vegetables with colors, so people can see how much color should be in a healthy daily diet.

"Create my own nature-matching system, where normal people can actually match color of their fruits and vegetable, and eat them," said the artist, Tattfoo Tan, of his creation. "So if they're eating something unhealthy there will be less color, so they can put more color into their meal."

Passersby were treated to free fruit as part of promotion for the exhibit.

The art project will span the street-level windows on Eighth Avenue between 41st and 42nd Streets and along 42nd Street.
