Artwork installed at 95th Street CTA Red Line stop

[VIDEO] You might have seen this on WGN yesterday and another story about a DJ booth at the new 95th terminal from ABC  Chicago.

Here's the ABC 7 story
Chicago artist Theaster Gates and Mayor Rahm Emanuel unveiled new works Monday morning at the newly-renovated CTA Red Line station at 95th Street.

A radio station called "An Extended Song of Our People", or "AESOP", will broadcast music by local artists at the terminal.

During the process of developing ideas for the new installations, Gates said at a press conference Monday morning that he wanted to address the needs of people in the community.

"We want to see clear examples of the history of the people on the South Side. We want to see clear examples of the future of our city. We want to see real examples of the present. We want to hear all our stories, all the time," Gates said. "I thought, that's a lot to deliver in a mural."
Here's what appears to be raw video
I want to check out this DJ booth, where in the station is it?
