The panoramic Trade, Treasure, and Travel, a series of ceramic murals spanning 30 feet and designed for the Cortlandt Street MTA subway station, was installed two levels beneath the World Trade Center in 1998. Three years later, it miraculously survived the September 11 terrorist attacks unharmed. For the 10-year anniversary remembered in September 2011, Hughto’s work of art was celebrated once again as a symbol of the city’s resilience. In January 2012, she created a major public artwork specifically for Syracuse’s new Public Transportation Common Center.
