Sidelight Replacement Project, June 2015

              
 The Boston Foundation sponsored a nine month fellowship for 9 artists/teams called the ExpressingBoston Fellowship. I was one of the chosen artists who received a stipend and material fees for the time period of October 2014 through June 2015, creating interventions along the Fairmount Cultural Corridor, defined as the communities along the recently refurbished Fairmount Indigo MBTA Commuter Line, that runs from South Station, downtown Boston, to Readville, Hyde Park, Boston. The upgraded train line serves the communities of Boston, Dorchester, Roxbury, Mattapan, and Hyde Park. 

At the Four Corners/Geneva Ave Station, the safety glass component in all of the seven or so small weather vestibules at the station has been shattered and removed. Instead of the glass, I installed decorative forged and painted wrought iron friezes, which stand in stark contrast to the brutalist concrete and prisonesque galvanized steel details of the underused MBTA station.
