Porcelain enamel on steel frieze.
The mezzanine walls feature a mosaic frieze by Anton van Dalen, installed in 1997 entitled "Work & Nature". This mosaic is 14 inches high by 83 feet long along both walls of the mezzanine. The work is in tones of soft blue, green and ochre like the original platform mosaics. It features stenciled silhouettes in black of a woman operating a sewing machine, a mother taking cvare of a child, a man planting a tree, an architect reading a blueprint, a female executive addresseing a meeting, and famous musician Furry Lewis. All of these symbolize, according to the artist, "...Pride, dignity and beauty surrounding all work." Source: mta.info.
