Built in 1969, the 95th Street station serves about 20,000 people on an average weekday.
The project will include artwork from internationally recognized artist Theaster Gates, who is holding a community meeting to engage the community, architects and designers about the art project. The meeting:
According to the CTA’s website: “Upon completion of construction work, the 95th Street terminal will be the showcase station of the entire CTA system —and the premier multimodal transportation terminal in the region. This artwork—and the community-driven process that will create it—will be a strong complement to the new terminal.”
