After the holidays, we are beginning the new year with a special focus on art!
VTA is hosting community meetings to meet the artists commissioned to enhance the two new light rail stations that will be built at Story Road and Eastridge in East San Jose. These stations are part of the planned 2.4-mile Orange Line extension from Alum Rock to the Eastridge Transit Center. The art enhancements will contribute to the vibrancy of the cityscape, promote neighborhood pride, create engaging experiences for pedestrians and transit users, and reinforce intuitive wayfinding.
The artists, Amir Fallah, and team, Laura Haddad and Tom Drugan, are looking forward to getting to know and engaging with the community. There will be an interactive activity that will provide the artists’ community members’ knowledge and perspectives of East San Jose, which will inspire them as they shape the designs for the new light rail stations.
We look forward to hearing from you!
There are two virtual meetings via Zoom. The first one will be held on January 9, 2023, 6pm. Spanish and Vietnamese translations will be provided. The meeting will be repeated on January 11, 2023, 6pm, and facilitated in Spanish.
