Station art

PROJECT: Platform Windscreens
ARTIST: Barbara Earl Thomas (Seattle, WA)
DESCRIPTION: Translating her cut-paper images into glass and metal, Barbara Thomas' work will tell a story in pictures across some of the station's platform windscreens. Thomas is a native of South Seattle and the station artwork is based on the idea of passing the torch from one generation to another. Thomas is further working to develop a component of the artwork that is accessible to the disabled community, in particular those served by the nearby Lighthouse for the Blind.

PROJECT: Station Entrances
ARTIST: Hank Willis Thomas (New York, NY)
DESCRIPTION: Thomas' two murals for the station celebrate a native son, Jimi Hendrix, capturing both the hope of youth and the fleeting nature of success. The west station entrance will feature a 50 foot tall mural of Hendrix based on a snapshot taken soon after his first teenage gig. At the east station entrance, Thomas' mural will be a collage of portraits taken at the peak of Hendrix' fame, rendered in gold-toned metal. Each artwork is an extension of Thomas' ongoing explorations of the interactions between identity, commerce and the media.
