Great Salt Lake

Day Christensen and Bonnie Sucec, 1999. Art in Transit/Temple Square Station. Salt Lake City. Text from the plaque: "Images of the Great Salt Lake represent the cultural and historic nature of this location and the significance of the City's name, derived from this beautiful and unique lake. The windscreens are handpainted with vitreous paint and the glass was then fired, evoking the colors of the lake. Red and gray brick pavers on the surface of the platform have been laid in a wave pattern and a flock of bronze seagulls is perched atop the canopies. Art in Transit, the public art program for TRAX is the result of a partnership between Utah Transit Authority, Federal Transit Administration, Salt Lake City Corporation, Redevelopment Agency of Salt Lake City, Salt Lake Art Design Board, Salt Lake City Arts Council and the artists."
