The new Belmont Train Station in Chicago, had an art competition to pick an artist to design the mosaics for the new station. I was selected as the winner. The mosaics were made at ERIN ADAMS DESIGN. The main design features an image of a fantastic train with many riders, called WE RIDE THE TRAIN TOGETHER. The columns of the station are covered with large eyes, each eye, a color of the different train lines that run thru the station. The outside columns feature large heads with multi color stripes, these heads celebrate diversity of the city and the people who ride the train. My concept was to celebrate train travel.
The train mosaic is 6 feet tall by 20 feet wide.
The indoor columns are 14 feet tall.
The outdoor columns with mosaics of the striped heads are 6 feet wide by 4 feet tall.
