MEDIA REVIEWS
"The book, most significantly, let's us view the underbelly project with an unprecedented degree of completion. Workhorse and PAC closed the doors to the station after they deemed the painting complete. There was no exhibition, no opening, and only small glimpses of its glory emerged for public consumption --just a few articles and an exhibition. The remarkable thing about the project, aside from simply discovering uncharted territory beneath NYC, is the breadth of of contributors to this secret, subterranean gallery." Complex

"In the new book We Own the Night, one hundred artists and their works are documented in over two hundred images exploring the space and the process of the Underbelly project. The gallery's location remains a secret kept by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, making it a time capsule for future generations." The Last Magazine

"This book itself then becomes a testament to art for its own sake, an artifact of a project that posed the provocative question: 'If no one will see it, will it still be important?'" Publishers Weekly
