25 - Westmoreland StationWestmoreland Station Sculpture

Adding human warmth and hope

This West Oak Cliff station is surrounded by a commercial and semi-industrial zone, amid largely Hispanic neighborhoods. The station's rich colors and textures add a needed visual interest and human warmth to the area and reflect its Hispanic heritage.

Westmoreland Station Column and TileTile work and paving designs were inspired by Spanish colonial-era architecture found throughout Mexico, while columns are clad in patterns and styles reminiscent of handmade Mexican tile and masonry. Roberto Mungia's Familia del Sol, a series of lush, vividly colored panels on the windscreens, depicts events in Mexican culture and mythology.

A massive limestone sculpture by Eliseo Garcia, Cycles of Life, features a foundation reminiscent of a Mayan pyramid and four bas-reliefs of human interaction topped by a winged figure, symbolizing the community's hope for the future.

Design Artist: Leticia Huerta
