Roots with Diversity
Dorothy Hughes
Hand-made ceramic tile
2014, Arts in Transit

Chicago-based artist Dorothy Hughes shares her interpretation of the natural and built environments surrounding the Berwyn Red Line station through her handcrafted artwork, featuring a grid of images painted onto hand-shaped ceramic tiles.

“The artwork brings together abstraction with some realism. The foliage, trees and lake will bring the environment in and the architectural elements will reflect the neighborhood. Overall this combination will leave space for the viewer’s imagination to factor in.” – Dorothy Hughes
