250 S. and 450 S. Light Rail Stations Downtown Salt Lake City, Utah
LIGHT RAIL STATIONS: SALT LAKE CITY, 2000 Artwork was incorporated into two light rail stations in downtown Salt Lake City, after the stations were completely designed. HERE 2000 250 S. Main Street/Gallivan Plaza Station, Salt Lake City, UT The Gallivan/255 S. Main station is based on the theme of “here”—both physically and temporally. The elements include cut sandstone benches, “X” pavement inlays with factoids about the city and region, and 40 small bronze grasshoppers/locusts installed on the canopies. Stone, cast bronze 2’ x 2’ x 2’ each approx (size varies slightly) 3” x 4” x2” bronze locusts
BALANCE 2000 450 S. Main St. Station, Salt Lake City, UT This station closest to the City/County Building and Courthouse metaphorically addresses the balancing of interests, laws, needs and desires that the courts and city must manage. Each cast bronze sculpture combines 2 or more elements in various types of relationships often looking at the difficulty of finding the balance of interests and elements in running government and administering the law. They also function as perching “seats.” A scale hangs from one of the catenary poles further embodying the theme. Cast & fabricated bronze 3’ x 3’ x 3’ approx., each varies in size
