One of the best parts about seeing a huge project like a light rail station come together is imagining the generations of people who will use it.
The art pieces on the Judkins Park Station platform are based on the idea of passing the torch from one generation to another.
Judkins Park Station is located in Seattle's Central District, next to Jimi Hendrix Park and the Northwest African American Museum, as well as the I-90 trail.
The artist, Barbara Earl Thomas, is a native of South Seattle. Some of the other art pieces at the station honor the connection of Hendrix to the neighborhood.
Translating her cut-paper images into glass and metal, Thomas' work tells a story in pictures across some of the station's platform windscreens.
"'A Walk in the Neighborhood,' my visual theatre, celebrates the landscape and the creatures that one might encounter during a stroll through my Seattle home," she explained. "Nearby you’ll find two of my dear friends, August Wilson and Charles Johnson, whose literary works remain always poised to take us on endless flights of the mind."

Thomas shared some photos on her Instagram page as well, with more explanation of the inspiration behind the art.
