Project Description

Fran Siegel’s artwork for this underground station will consist of layered sequences from the surrounding landscape, above and below ground. In her photographic collage—which will be fabricated in glass and extend across the north and south walls of the station concourse—reverberating patterns of light and shadow will reveal prehistoric fossils, bubbling asphalt from the La Brea Tar Pits and art deco architectural details amid strata of time and local history.

Artist Statement

“The artwork’s kaleidoscopic appearance fuses multiple viewpoints, subjects and time sequences, providing a rich visual complexity that connects a wide range of travelers with their surroundings.”
