The Art of Monrovia's New Train Station


Hand painted ramp tiles by Cha Rie Tang, Artist.

Art for the coming Monrovia Gold Line station is being called, "River of Time," and celebrates Monrovia's architectural heritage and natural beauty. Artist Cha-Rie Tang has combined tile, glass and natural materials, with a suggestion of water toward the station platforms by a band of field tiles glazed to suggest a stream, as well as from handmade glass bricks around a river-worn boulder that will sit at the entrance to the station. Each column base will include decorative tiles, created to celebrate the local history of Batchelder tiles. Source: http://goo.gl/Zc8w1q
