From There to Here

August 21 – October 19, 2014

Opening Reception

Thursday August 21, 2014
7 – 8:30 p.m.

From There to Here explores the ways that public transportation intersects with community and connects people to places and the opportunities they offer. Featuring the commissioned work of local artists Xavier Tavera, Wing Young Huie with Ashley Hanson, and Katherine Turczan, the projects consider the neighborhoods that light rail users move through but never visit, the temporary community formed by people waiting at the same stop and riding the same train, and the glimpses of them seen through the window of a passing train. All three projects of From There to Here celebrate local diversity, evoke a unique sense of place, reflect local history and culture, and involve all levels of constituents. It is a truly exciting and multivalent project born of the energy and diversity of the Central Corridor itself.
