Public art: Bullseye provides mosaics for new MAX line

Bullseye is proud to be part of TriMet’s new Portland-Milwaukie light rail line, scheduled start service in September 2015. Our Research and Education team collaborated with the Canadian firm Mosaika to translate Chicago-based artist Lynn Basa‘s paintings into glass mosaics for the shelter columns at the new MAX line stations. Basa’s artwork for each station reflects the character and history of the neighborhoods along the line. Four mosaic artists (hired by Bullseye and trained by Saskia Siebrand of Mosaika) spent nine months meticulously translating Lynn Basa’s artwork into glass.

Check out a Flickr album with photos of the mosaics being installed. Below, a nifty video about the project from TriMet, featuring Bullseye’s Tom Jacobs.
