It’s official–Rebar has been selected by Tri-Met for the artwork commission at the Clinton Street/SE 12th Avenue station of Portland’s newest light rail line. We are pulling on our galoshes and brewing a big pot of artisan-roasted ideas in preparation for this gig in Stumptown. From the project’s concept design:

The Clinton Street station is a central gathering place framed
by a series of new transit-oriented developments. The area
is now active with a vibrant mix of industrial, employment,
retail, services and housing that successfully integrates with the
character of the surrounding neighborhoods. Easy wayfinding
is provided and enhanced by public art. The station is easily
accessible by bicyclists, pedestrians and bus riders, and
improved connections provide a link to the riverfront. The
Powell Boulevard overpass is a highly visible structure used
by many bicyclists and pedestrians who now enjoy a safe
connection between the Brooklyn and Hosford-Abernethy
neighborhoods. Students who live in the surrounding area use
the station and improved bicycle routes to access OHSU and
PSU
