81 Street Museum of Natural History subway station mosaics

This is a post, is for Beautiful Sunday hosted by @ace108, and Sublime Sunday, created and hosted by @c0ff33a, I try each week to think of something that may fit both of these challenges and when I visited the Museum of Natural History earlier this week, I went there on the Subway and came across some cool mosaics in the station by the tracks I got off at that I thought would fit these challenges.
Starting with this one, I guess the big kid in me shows out that the main thing I wanted to see when I got to the museum was the dinosaur exhibits

A little bit about this station it opened on September 10, 1932, as part of the opening of the first city-owned subway line, the IND Eighth Avenue Line, as part of the 1998–2000 station renovation these Mosaics were added.

Even though the Dinosaur were the top of my list to see all the exhibits in the Museum were good to see, the Bird ones were up there for me as well so the second mosaic I share is of this eagle.

Even the station signs and direction on best exit to get to the museum are shown with mosaics

I did like this colorful lizard.

I do love mosaic art, it has always been a style I really enjoy

Such a mosaic is certainly more work than putting a puzzle together. Your photos show great mosaic art - I also like the dinosaur most 😊

Something that takes someone patience to put together for sure

Absolutely more patience than I have LOL

more than me too. :-)

The tile mosaics are really cool. I think we never out grow the our early love of dinosaurs.

Arent they just I always love seeing them, and yes for sure wqellI never grew up LOL

An art form always pleasing to the eye, the eagle swooping and lizard are so well done it feels realistic.

Natural art museum must be epic to see on arrival at this platform, nice photography against the tiles getting the lighting right.

I think its great they did these they are so cool and gets you in the mood for the Museum :)

Hey @tattoodjay, here is a little bit of BEER from @johannpiber for you. Enjoy it!

The details in these mosaics are amazing!

Ohh yeah such talented artists :)

Those are beautiful mosaic work...
I can't imagine them at public areas... Thank you for sharing them!

Its so cool they have art like this in the city :)

I agree! wish they had stuff like that here too....

Oh wow, I can't recall if I was ever at this station. Those are some pretty cool looking tile works though. I remember when I was a kid we used to do our own "fake" mosaics out of paper and glue and stuff like that. I was never that good at it.

Ohh yeah I had forgotten doing that at school, and I was not only not good at it I was terrible LOL

!BEER

We have a stage in our life that we let out and how we enjoy them.

Exactly sometimes we have to let our inner child run free

Beautiful art and a great way to advertise the museum. This is my first time at seeing mosaic art and I could really appreciate it more by enlarging your photos so thanks for that. So cool! : )

I think its such a brilliant idea, and love that they did it, the artists must have more patience thanI have I could never do something like this
