BROOKLYN HEIGHTS - A deceased MTA employee?s artwork is on display at the New York Transit Museum.

Marvin Franklin, who was killed last year while working on the subway tracks in Brooklyn, pursued his love of art for over 20 years. His sketches and work, usually inspired by the very subways he worked on, have been exhibited at the museum for the past two months. The curator of the exhibit said his work truly represents New York.

Some art enthusiasts appreciate Franklin?s work and subject matter.

?It?s something that many artists do. They take characters from their everyday life and there?s nothing pretentious about his subject matter,? said Jim Constantinople. ?These are the people he, as a transit worker, would see going and coming from work.?

The exhibit on Marvin Franklin ends March 31 - .
