Free CTA art tour
Usually we’re all rushing in and out of CTA stations but if you have the time stop and take a look or better yet take a tour. The collection includes mosaics, sculptures and paintings. More than 80 pieces of art are exhibited at over 40 CTA stations. More artwork has been commission for 10 additional stations on the blue and red lines.
Many of the pieces are the result of the Arts in Transit Program, which is funded by the Federal Transit Administration and coordinated locally through the City of Chicago’s Department of Tourism and Culture.
A number of other pieces were created through the CTA’s Adopt-A-Station program and through partnerships with organizations such as the Chicago Public Art Group. Original artwork adds value not only to our stations and their surrounding communities, but also to the overall transit experience.
