Shown in the photo from the left, Executive Director of Citizens for Modern Transit Kim Cella, Belleville Mayor Patty Gregory, Managing Director of St. Clair County Transit District Ken Sharkey and award-winning architect and artist Gary Karasek recently gathered for the community unveiling of an art installation at the Belleville Transit Center.
The piece created by Karasek titled, “On the Move,” depicts the flow of water and incorporates tones of blue, purple and white. The installation features polished stainless steel gazing balls mounted on springs, providing slight movement and vibrations representative of bubbles and water spray. A LED backlight gives a color changing glow around the finished art.
This piece, done in collaboration with the Center for Academic Vocation (C.A.V.E), helps to further complement the Transit Stop Transformation Project at the site which is rooted in the theme – “Art Grows in Belleville.”
