Orange Lining

Trimet Orange Line, Portland – Milwaukie, OR.

Lines of text along light rail. A two phase public art project created by Buster Simpson and Peg Butler, for TriMet’s new Portland – Milwaukie Light Rail (PMLR) Transit Project.

The two phases complement each other with alignment-wide art installations that create conceptual and aesthetic continuity along the 7.3 mile length of the new light rail alignment. The installations are episodic expressions of the times, reflecting upon the egalitarian, utilitarian and civic nature of this new infrastructure project.
