Submit a subway-inspired GIF to “Animating Transit,” an exhibition inspired by the trains New Yorkers love (and love to hate). You have until Sunday, June 21 at midnight to see your GIF in the online and offline exhibition, so hurry! Here’s all the deets.
But what if I don’t have any ideas for GIFs about the subway?
Of course you do! New York City’s subways are incredible. They’re the best option we have for getting around the city. And they’re full of history. Sure, there’s delays, overcrowding, and the occasional signal problem. But you never know what’s going to happen!
Will the 7 train be delayed—again? Maybe you’ll sit next to someone eating sticky, gooey BBQ wings without abandon. And what about the rats! So exciting.
For those of you who like GIFs, but don’t make them can come out to celebrate for the one-night PLATFORM event held the night of June 24 at the Transit Museum (a museum that’s located underground inside an abandoned subway). It’ll feature several screenings, exhibitions, and performances, with clowns, prayer beads, and dancing. See the full schedule here. Get $5 off when you enter the AFCREATE discount code at checkout.
