Jenna Rodriguez “Traverse”

Installed November 2017.

Lead artist Jenna Rodriguez worked with students of the NEL program over the summer of 2017 to complete “Traverse” for the Evelyn T. Butts Transfer Station.  Wood templates of hands were created and fabricated in plastic at Norva Plastics.  Quotes gathered from travelers are imprinted on various ones.  Students worked with the artist to place the hands strategically along the chain link fence surrounding the station.  A mural stretching over a block was painted for the retainer wall and depicts residents on the move.
