When Boston-based artist Catherine Widgery was approached by El Paso’s Museums and Cultural Affairs Department to create a series of artworks for the Mesa corridor, her first thought was, "How can art even be seen in this environment?" Her solution was to integrate the custom-fabricated metal screens into the architecture of each station to feature oversized images of local flora, such as the Algerian Ivy plant, seen in the image above at the Montecito station.
