Connections by Barbara Bernstein Installed at Crystal City/Potomac Yard Transitway
Check out our latest completed project, Connections by Barbara Bernstein. In 2011, Arlington Public Art and the Department of Environmental Services selected Virginia artist Barbara Bernstein through a competitive process to create artwork for the windscreen panels for the Crystal City/Potomac Yard Transitway’s seven stations. Each windscreen has an iteration of a simple line becoming an intricate, flowing interdependent pattern. The artwork for each station is rendered in a unique color family, making the stations distinct landmarks for the public they serve.
