Mounted on the bases of the elevators and pillars of the CTA tracks and station, these mosaics are made up of a colorful arrangement of cracked ceramic tiles. Designed to highlight local cultural and environmental themes, the mosaics enhance the viewers’ appreciation of the ‘L’ stop, the conservatory and the community.
