Art of the Metrocard

You need a metrocard to ride the NYC subway.

Most people just throw it away when they don't need it anymore. But other use the small credit card size card as a canvas for art, origami and other art-like inspirations.

remember lots of advertisers and local tourist stops using the backs of the cards for messages and promotions. But, others have used this little 3x2 card as a canvas for paintings and silk screens. Or, used discarded cards to make origami-like objects.

I like to write positive messages on used cards and leave them on my seat when I get off. However don't do this on the DC Metro because you still need to card to get out of the system, whoops.
