[REPOST] Watch New Yorker Cartoonist Roz Chast Create a Full Mural for Museum of the City of New York in Time Lapse

Roz Chast is a well-known cartoonist for The New Yorker, and now has a special exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York that celebrates her illustrative work.

In this video from MCNY, watch in time lapse as Chast paints her mural "Subway Sofa" on the third floor of the museum to mark her exhibit's entrance.

During the first weekend of April, artist Roz Chast took up residence on the City Museum's 3rd floor to create "Subway Sofa," a painting that welcomes visitors to our #‎RozChast exhibition, on view through October 9, 2016. Featuring the cramped comfort of NYC apartments and the horrors of subway commuting, it's the perfect foray into a show that highlights Chast's uncanny ability to capture the absurdities of city life in hilarious cartoons.

The exhibit is free for any ticketed visitor at the museum.
