Here are five things to know about the artworks-in-progress for the future Westchester/Veterans Station. The artworks will contribute to a welcoming environment for riders and connect the station to surrounding neighborhoods.
- Artist Geoff McFetridge uses simple lines and flat color to create his own visual language.
- His use of geometry alludes to architecture, and the infrastructure of a city. The large shapes could be seen as the structures of the city that both support and are supported by the people.
- The large graphic forms are abstract while the people, though geometric, are specific. They are mothers and kids, gardeners and lawyers.
- The final forms end up being many things: a captured moment in a dance, a group, a community, a city.
- The artist is an avid cyclist and uses trains as the final leg in long rides.
