The TTC has unveiled art concepts for 7 stations earlier this week.

As part of the TTC Public Art Program, the concepts, which include murals and installations, are set to be added to stations that are either under construction or scheduled for construction in the near future.

Public art concepts for stations are selected by an art jury including one local representative for each station, according to the TTC. On June 5, the TTC had an open house for public feedback, after which the concepts and feedback will be presented to the TTC Board.

The proposed art work includes mosaics and art glass, along with installations made from durable, powder-coated steel tubes. Some are reflective of the neighbourhoods they are situated in, and others such as the King Street piece, will continually be changing; the public will get to experience in new ways each time they see it.

Here’s a peak at the proposed art:
