AROUND THE INDUSTRY

Transit Art in Grand Rapids

The Rapid in Grand Rapids, MI, recently dedicated the final art installation at Rapid Central Station: a sculpture called Journey Home, by internationally renowned sculptor Dennis Oppenheim. Shown with the work—approximately 20 feet tall and made of an aluminum/zinc-coated steel frame, colored Lexan sheets, and perforated aluminum mesh—are, from left, Peter Varga, chief executive officer of The Rapid; Oppenheim; and Rapid Art Committee members Carol Sheets and Dirk Hoffius. The artist says his intention is to depict travel as a flowing movement through space, made simply to arrive at a place.
