 'A Stylized Cityscape'
  Media: Mosaic Tile
  Year: 1984

  Notes: The textured walls of the Oakland City station and the surrounding houses and apartments were the visual inspiration for these wall sculptures. The artist wanted the work to have a warm, informal feeling and chose soft earth tones with sky blue to achieve this.

 'I Am Because We Are'
  Media: Digital Print of Acrylic on Canvas
  Year: 2017
  Conservation Status: New
  Notes: This artwork is the third of four paintings in the “En Route” series, a partnership between WonderRoot and MARTA, along with the TransFormation Alliance. In this artwork, Oakland City neighbors have posed for portraits that were then realized in larger-than-life size by the artist and are displayed throughout the station’s Concourse level.
