A wide range of art by seven artists – four of them from Chicago – will adorn the station houses of the seven Red Line north stations that were rehabbed last year.
The gallery shows photos of the art at Jarvis, Morse, Granville, Thorndale, Berwyn, Argyle and Lawrence.
The artwork for the seven north Red Line stations is paid for with Transit Enhancement Funds from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). The total project budget is nearly $621,000 and includes all costs including artist fees, fabrication, shipping/delivery, installation, administrative fees and a project contingency fund. Similar federal funds will be used for the commissioning of public artwork installed at Red Line South and Wilson stations.
Public meetings will be held over the next three weeks about the art projects at the Wilson and Red Line South station. View the schedule.
