Women’s History Month: Sarah Butler’s big Bingo break
Artist Sarah Butler is carefully balancing her life as a mother, a wife, and a full-time worker – and it's all paying off in the Big Apple.
Her Instagram page attracted the attention of the publication Gothamist, which commissioned her to make a New York City-centric Bingo card.
Last year, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority sought out her now signature work.
“I remember I got that email at my desk and just started sweating. This was a big one," she told News 12.
Her MTA card included illustrations of 25 subway-related sights. They were sold as merch and the Bingo cards were displayed on MTA screens throughout November.
She’s hoping her signature artwork will continue to attract more publications – like the cover of The New Yorker.
