The CTA website describes..
The distant horizon of Michael Dinges’ abstracted prairie landscape
beckons commuters entering the station, drawing their eyes up the
stairway to the mezzanine. A broad expanse of gold and green, and
the luminous, diffused colors of the overarching sky evoke a feeling
of boundlessness to match the sense of possibilities one may feel
when setting out for a new destination.

The CTA website describes..
Abstract, dynamic and impeccably detailed, Landslide, like all of Derick Malkemus’ work, is a three-dimensional drawing — as significant for its lines as for its forms. Employing a unique visual vocabulary, the artist intends his work to be an expression through form, without narrative, to be appreciated without need for a verbal explanation.
