BART Warm Springs ART

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

In keeping with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) guidelines to incorporate art into mass transit projects, BART has commissioned artwork from Massachusetts artist Catherine Widgery for the new Warm Springs / South Fremont Station. The goals of the BART Warm Springs Extension (WSX) Art Program are to provide a unique identity for the new station and to attract riders by creating more vibrant and welcoming stations. Catherine Widgery's "Sky Cycles" weaves images from differing times of day, times of year, and points of view into large expanses of art glass. The artist's goal is to create artwork that is never the same from any place or time of day. Patrons will find different details and combinations of colors and light each time they visit the station. Fremont's lakes, hills and city skyline serve as the inspiration for the abstract images on the station curtain walls and rotunda.
