As you may or may not know, Sound Transit spends 1% of its capital budget on art. The results are kind of mixed. Some of the art is great, others are interesting, some is kind of odd, and some is just plain terrible (see the above installation next to the Paramount on Pine).
Sound Transit is commissioning a $550,000 installation at the UW station, and is looking for artists. They already found one for Capitol Hill station. That’s a lot of money, and all you artists out there, I would really love something awesome in that station.
So, this leaves me with two questions. First, what is the best art (and worst) at a Transit location in our area? And second, what would you like to see the $550,000 go for at UW station?
