102 Miraculous Years
A mosaic work of art, featuring flowers climbing the wall of the Avenue U station on the Q line, was named one of the best public artworks in the U.S. at the 2012 Americans for the Arts Convention. The work, named Brooklyn Seeds, was created by Jason Middlebrook and using glass and ceramic tile, and depicts wildflowers that grow in urban neighborhoods through cracks in the sidewalks and in alleys. It is visible on the southbound stairwell leading from the street level of the platform. The artwork was commissioned by MTA Arts for Transit to help improve several stations on the Brighton line.
