Art - Judkins Park Station

  • PROJECT: Platform Windscreens
    • ARTIST: Barbara Earl Thomas (Seattle)
    • DESCRIPTION: A simple story told in pictures will spread across the station’s platform windscreens. The artwork is loosely based on the theme of passing the torch, the artist’s understanding of how the Judkins Park neighborhood has changed over time. STart will work with Earl Thomas to develop a component of the artwork that is accessible to the disabled community.
