  1. So, Diane, are you in favor of art as part of Metro projects, or no?
    Do you don’t like the are that is there? Isn’t that likely to happen with any art?

    About the Gold Line Bridge: “The original concept for the bridge design was envisioned by internationally-recognized and award-winning artist Andrew Leicester, selected to be the project’s Design Concept Advisor following a competitive, international search.” So, there was a competitive search and the artist draws insipration from the native culture. These are bad things? BTW, the higher resoultion pictures show the baskets better and the theme is carried in the cross member. Wait and see if it is not better than the picture.
