for Earth Week 2019 on a Metro Transit Green Line train
Exterior and Interior train wrap illustrations focused on celebrating our incredible natural world here in Minnesota.
On a train car April 21st- April 27th
THE STORIES BEHIND THE WORK:
In partnership with SCP Arts and the Department of Justice and Peace Studies’ Leadership for Social Justice course at the University of St Thomas, Metro Transit collaborated with students to collect the rich stories of transit riders. These stories have been published in their book, Transit Transformations.
Students worked on the book cover art with SCP Artist- In- Residence Sarah Nelson. They felt the life cycle of the monarch butterfly was the best metaphor for the transformative effect public transport can have on communities.
In partnership with Metro Transit, SCP Arts, and the College of Arts and Sciences SOLV Initiative, at the University of St Thomas, local artist Sarah Nelson created an Earth Day Celebration Illustration.
The interior depicts Minnesota animals enjoying the outdoors and our wonderful cities. It is meant to remind us of our relationship to our natural environment and to inspire joy. It is detailed. It is fun.
The interior illustrations transition between the four seasons and through a full day cycle.

Art Fair presents 24 solo artist booths. Each artist has been tasked with creating their presentation 1:12 scale to fit within the space constraints of the gallery. The fair features paintings, print, sculpture, ceramics, and installation. This show was conceived as a response to the influence the art fair has had on the production of artwork and the commodification of the installation image.
