The Red Line, Closely

A few days ago, I posted about the various artworks found on Boston's subway system. Some of them are hidden or hard-to-spot, while others are in plain view. Today, I take you on a close-up tour of the Red Line, and invite you to try your hand at identifying the art installations with the photos at which they are found.

Here's how it'll work: below are 24 photos of 24 different art works. Some of them are relatively wide-view, but several are pretty close up. I tried to find interesting angles and specific details that aren't necessarily apparent right off the bat, so look closely!

If you can guess any (or all!) of the stations represented here, e-mail them to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . For every one you get right, we'll award you some Interropoints [editor's note: program now closed]. The person(s) who get the most correct will receive a whole big lump of extra points as well.

Please note:

  • You don't have to be a registered user to play...you can still send me your guesses for the chance to win copious amounts of e-praise and/or a hundred million dollars (haven't decided which yet). Either way, totally worth the increased notion of self worth....
  • Some stations are represented more than once! (Apparently artists like some stops more than others?)
  • None of the stations are on the Ashmont/Mattapan branch (ie. between Savin Hill and Mattapan on the map at left). No, I'm not being Ashmontist, I legitimately couldn't find much on that portion of the line. If I'm missing something there, please let me know!
  • Remember, some installations are outside the stations.

Answers will be posted sometime during the week of February 7th-11th, as will the larger pictures in their specific contexts. Ready? And......go!
