Art glass instalaltion created for the Addison Blue Line station by renowned artist Francisco Simeti

Constant Flow into multitudes of specific Forms
Francesco Simeti
2020, Arts in Transit

This vibrant and colorful art glass installation replaced 40 clear glass window panels throughout the Addison stationhouse. To create this ornate and organically lush scene, the artist combined illustrations of indigenous trees, plants and wildflowers. Woven within the landscape are fragments of Louis Sullivan-designed architectural ornamentation in homage to the legendary architect’s work in the vicinity of the Addison station.

The title of this artwork is a phrase excerpted from A System of Architectural Ornament, the collection of Sullivan’s masterpiece drawings and ideas, published as his final statement about the geometry underlying both natural and man-made forms.
