Norie Sato, 1999. Art in Transit/Gallivan Plaza Station. Salt Lake City. Text from the plaque: "Taking a cue from the familiar phrase, "This is the Place," the artwork places bronze X's with facts about our community in the paving. Seats of Utah sandstone, with shapes tapering downward, "point" to the place and provide a link between the past and the present, or the here and now, and the future. Bronze crickets and grasshoppers inhabit the station, reminding us that these insects, though individually small, have had a significant role with both native and immigrant cultures in the past, which continues in the present and presumably into the future. 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."
