Green Line Public Art Plan
Site: Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Designers: Jeanine Centuori and Russell Rock
Client: City of Calgary, Public Art Division
This Art Plan serves to direct the implementation of public art along the new Green Line Light Rail Transit (LRT) Line. This light rail line will connect the Downtown core and its adjacent communities extending to and across the Bow River along what is currently Bus Routes 301 and 302 to the southern most stop of Shepard and the northern station of 16 Ave North. Future extensions will expand to the 160 Ave North station, and the Seton station to the south.
The Green Line Public Art Plan serves as an armature for the making of the public artworks. It identifies potential sites, gives ideas as to types of artworks, provides general approaches to themes, and offers a structure for the various scales to be exercised. Constructed through a layered approach, this Public Art Plan will allow the Public Art Program a flexible instrument that is responsive to the demands of need; enriching communities as the transit line develops and grows over time.
