Here are five things to know about the artworks-in-progress for the future Fairview Heights Station. The artworks will contribute to a welcoming environment for future riders and connect the station to surrounding neighborhoods.

  1. Kim Schoenstadt’s artwork design features architectural “mash-ups,” creating playful new impossible forms.
  2. The artist celebrates iconic and lesser known buildings that represent the intricate history of the community.
  3. Blue “snap-lines” reference timelines of history and the far-reaching effect one person or place has on another.
  4. The blue lines make the artwork design visually cohesive as they also resonate with the lines of the tracks, phone lines, and painted lines on the street.
  5. The artist is planning talks at local schools on the process of making a large-scale public artwork.
