David Bowie MetroCards Are Currently All the Rage in New York City
Right now David Bowie is all over New York City, which happens to be the former home of the glam rock icon. The Brooklyn Museum has teamed up with Spotify and the Manhattan Transit Authority (MTA) to make sure his legacy is felt everywhere. One of the ways they are spreading his stardust is by selling limited-edition David Bowie MetroCards. Want one of these artsy keepsakes? Well, read on.
Currently the Brooklyn Museum is hosting an exhibition about the late, great musician, who passed away in 2016 from liver cancer at the age of 69. The exhibit has on display 400 items from his archive, including costumes, handwritten lyric sheets from some of his best-known songs, original album art, photographs and videos. The exhibit tracks Bowie’s journey from his childhood days in England through the last 20 years of his life, during which he resided in New York City.
