This subway station just got a makeover for Inauguration Day!
Today, Joseph Biden will become the 46th President of the United States, and artist Adrian Wilson (@plannedalism) is at it again — as he has redesigned the 46th St. subway station at Broadway in Astoria, Queens on the M/R line, to now read “46th Joe.”

It also reads “45th Out” beneath.
He also appears to have changed the entrance of the station to read “Mr. Biden” (using the M & R train symbols):
Wilson has done a few of these subway art installations in the past — from dedicating Prince St. to music icon Prince to turning Franklin St. into an Aretha Franklin tribute to a David Bowie memorial at Broadway-Lafayette.
Most recently, he remade 50th St. to “Ruth St.” in a memorial to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

He always uses stickers so there’s no permanent damage, or cost to the city to remove.
The sign should be there until the MTA or NYPD removes it since it is technically illegal to obscure the location of the station.
