In 2014, Roy Nicholson was commissioned by the MTA Arts & Design program to expand on the original concept of the mosaic murals for the downstairs waiting room of Long Island Rail Road’s Hicksville station, which had been installed in 2001. The current project in the new platform waiting rooms and renovated stair and escalator wells similarly reflects the concept of depicting the Hempstead Plain dynamically, as if seen by commuters as they travel west in the morning and east in the evening on the speeding train, in this instance using indigenous plants as landmarks that identify the vistas even more closely with the historic plain. In 2018, the installation of four glass-enclosed waiting rooms has been completed, each with 50-foot panels of art glass on either side. For images of the installed panels, click here.
