By Barbara Cooper
2009 / Mosaic: Hand-cut glass
Sculpture: Riveted brass and stainless-steel sheeting
Location: CTA Station: Paulina [Brown Line]
Under the CTA Arts-in-Transit program,
where CTA stands for Chicago Transit Authority..

The CTA website describes..
Transitions comprises a suspended sculpture and a mosaic, which form an artistic dialogue.
“Transitions is intended to mirror the fluid, ephemeral, high-energy cellular neighborhoods of the city and the connections and intersections
between them, which public transportation facilitates…[it] references not only passage to different physical places, but also to other states of being and points in time.”
