What is New York’s perspective on transit? What inspires you about your daily commute, whether it be good or bad? How do artists view the MTA? The diversity that comes with this institution; the many faces of its community and the perspectives that they bring. The dark side of transportation and the cost you have to give when taking the Metro Transit Authority. Make This Accessible reveals small secrets within the system you see everyday.

Make This Accessible is the first annual For-Teens-By-Teens exhibition curated by BRIC's inaugural Youth Curatorial Fellows focusing on New York City's transit systems.
