Reflective Discourse is a series of blue metal panels that run along the wheelchair ramp up into the Park and Ride parking garage, covered in words chosen to reflect learning and education in conjunction with the station's university location. The panels continue inside the pedestrian tunnel inside of the station as well. Simple, yet inspiring.
Denver's RTD system includes a program called Art-n-Transit, where commissioned statues, murals, and art installations are included at over 30 light rail and bus stations in the Denver metro area. The Louisiana-Pearl light rail station features a piece entitled Stange Machine, created by Ira Sherman and dedicated in 2006. Gigantic metal leaves welcome you to the entrance of the machine, where several overhead kinetic sculptures can be turned by orbs around the station and light up and spin like train wheels in motion. Stange Machine is one of the few installations that requires visitors to actually enter the light rail platforms, but no ticket is required unless you intend to board a train. A unique way to pass the time waiting for the train to arrive!
