Weaving the tapestry of the neighborhood
This station is located in the Trinity Heights section of Oak Cliff, a primarily African American community with a large, growing Hispanic population. It serves as a symbolic plaza with decorative columns extending into the community. Columns and pavers depict woven patterns, a direct reference to the station's tapestry theme.
Artist Nancy Lovendahl and neighborhood children collaborated to create Backbone of Our Community, sculptural seating featuring 21 blocks of Texas limestone with expressions such as "unity" and "laughter" sandblasted on every other stone.
Ten colorful mural drawings titled The Art of Transportation: Bringing Us Together were created by the children and rendered on the windscreens by artist Bernice Montgomery. The series depicts various stages of transportation from horse-and-buggy days to futuristic space exploration.
