Round and Round
by Anne Marie Karlsen
2007, Art glass
Location: CTA Station: Kedzie [Brown Line]
Under the CTA Arts-in-Transit program,
where CTA stands for Chicago Transit Authority..
From the CTA Arts-in-Transit website..
Round and Round celebrates the historic and ongoing connection between the Kedzie station and the community. Anne Marie Karlsen achieved the kaleidoscopic motif by layering graphic imagery with color via photomontage. From a distance, the pattern of circles and semi-circles suggests the motion of train wheels, but a close look reveals images from historic photographs of train cars, the Kedzie station and the
CTA Public Art..
