Artwork of the West Rail

 

The West Rail Line provides a great opportunity for RTD to build on its "Art-n-Transit" program.

Since 1994, the mission of RTD's Art-n-Transit program has been to enhance the design, aesthetic quality and user friendliness of transit projects, as well as to foster transit-oriented community development.

The Art-n-Transit program is based on RTD's belief that public art helps provide a stronger connection between neighborhoods and transit.

Installing artwork at transit facilities creates a sense of community and provides opportunities to celebrate the diverse cultural, ethnic and historical richness of the many communities RTD serves.

After an extensive process of reviewing a total of 916 applications, 10 artists were selected for commissioning of artwork at 12 locations, including all West Rail stations, windscreens and the Kipling Bridge.
