PROJECT: LIGHT RAIL PLATFORM WIND SCREEN AND FENCE
CLIENT: NEW JERSEY TRANSIT
LOCATION: WASHINGTON PARK
STATION, NEWARK, NEW JERSEY
These works were commissioned by New Jersey Transit
for location at the Washington Park Lightrail and Bus platform on Broad St. in Newark, NJ. The first piece, titled "Windshields"
serves as a windscreen on the bus platform and consists of 2 pairs intersecting African inspired shields etched glass
and framed in stainless steel. The second piece, a 200 foot long fence located at the platforms edge, is a grouping
of 4 foot tall aluminum letters painted in two shades of blue to alternately create two intersecting sentences readable from both front and back. The sentence
reads "Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall."
