At the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station in Millbrae, California, there are 6 sculptures in bronze, concrete and ceramic by Scott Donahue, a public art sculptor. Donahue refers to these works as “Sculpture in the Round” because his “… goal is to compel viewers to move around the artwork and have its meaning slowly unfold.” This BART art is a little surprising the first time you see it as you head toward your train.
From one side to the other, you see this figure transition from her family and home in the suburbs to her business world in San Francisco via the BART train on top. (Zoom in on the photos below to see more detail.)
I’ve never had the chance to study all 6 of the sculptures at the station — always running late, I guess. In fact, what this sculpture says to me is, “Late for the train”.
This is my submission for this week’s Travel Photo Thursday on the Budget Traveler’s Sandbox website.
