In Metro’s ongoing effort to improve the transit environment and attract customers to our system, Metro completed installation of new artworks at Manchester Station as part of the Silver Line Revitalization Project. The artworks were carefully fitted and applied to the underside of the glass canopies above the seating areas.
Created by artist Christine Nguyen, the colorful artworks present dreamlike imagery of the local flora and fauna. A mountainous urban environment is portrayed amid oceanic life forms inspired by aquatic life found at surrounding marine preserves and tide pools. In reference to the changing colors of the ocean when viewed at different times of the day, one canopy design incorporates mostly blue hues to represent daytime while the other is delineated in orange, yellow, red and purple for sunset.
