MONT/ROSE: AREA
Jason Pickleman
Cast aluminum, vinyl decals
2007, Arts in Transit

Comprising 318 complete and partial letterforms of anodized aluminum, Jason Pickleman’s mural celebrates neighboring streets around the Montrose Brown Line station using the graphic language of wayfinding and commercial signage. Set in Neue Helvetica font, the street names are broken at odd lengths, stacked and repeated to create new word combinations that are both familiar and irregular.
