2008 /Transfer-printed glazed ceramic tile
Location: CTA Station: Southport [Brown Line]..

where CTA stands for Chicago Transit Authority..
The abstract imagery of these murals is derived from the artist’s own photographs of the neighborhood surrounding the Southport station,
which she layered and transformed through digital collage. The yellow mural is meant to energize and inspire patrons on their commute into the Loop, while the green mural is intended to impart feelings of coolness and serenity as they return home..
