GlasPro representatives from SpecReps will be at SOURCED AUSTIN to show you our latest glass product lines.
Set to open in late 2022, the Crenshaw/LAX rail line is a $2-billion transportation investment from Los Angeles County Metro Rail’s federal, state, and local partners that will serve the cities of Los Angeles, Inglewood, and El Segundo. The new Expo/Crenshaw light rail station, located in the Jefferson Park neighborhood of LA, is one of several new stations on the Crenshaw/LAX project, which will be known as the “K line.”
All K Line stations include artwork commissioned through the agency’s Metro Art program. Artists were selected through an open, competitive selection process following the recommendation of a panel of community-based arts professionals. Artwork commissioned for the Expo/Crenshaw station includes a glass pavilion entrance by artist Erwin Redl.
Giroux Glass selected GlasPro to work with Mr. Redl and to fabricate laminated colored glass for the art installation. The new artwork — titled Inside Out – Outside In – Inside Out — spans three glass walls of the station’s entrance pavilion and can be seen from the street.
The artwork is inspired by the West Angeles Cathedral, an anchor of the Crenshaw community that is within view of the station’s entrance.
The artwork’s main feature is transparent trapezoids that cast patterns of color into the station by day to create a spectacular sundial effect and reflect the vibrancy of the surrounding neighborhood. By night, the interior light from the station will spill onto the surrounding sidewalk – a multicolored beacon that illuminates a pathway for passersby.
