Exhibit at Lextran Transit Center Features Local Artist

Aug. 3, 2015

Lextran, in partnership with LexArts, recently installed a new exhibit at its downtown transit center. The exhibit features work from local artist Blake Eames. 

Eames’ four colorful new features, entitled Playing on the Rug, Sticks and Stones, Fabric Study {the 60’s}, and Roofing, are displayed in backlit lightboxes along the passenger walkways.

“The concept of the Lextran Lightbox Exhibit is a wonderfully inclusive way for those in the community to be exposed to local art in their day to day lives,” said artist Blake Snyder Eames. “I am thrilled to be a part of this project and appreciate Lextran’s efforts to bring art to the public during their daily commute.”

Lextran and LexArts have collaborated on public art displays since 2008. The Eames exhibit continues those efforts to make the transit center more visually appealing and inviting to Lextran customers and the community at large.

“Our Transit Center is fairly utilitarian by design so when we had the chance to work with Blake, we wanted to seize the opportunity and create a more vibrant and friendly environment for our customers,” said Carrie Butler, Lextran general manager.
