North Killingsworth Street Station, part of Portland, Oregon's Yellow Max line
for public transit,
opened May 1, 2004. Artwork at this station was developed through a mentorship between
Adriene Cruz and design team artist, Valerie Otani. As in all Adriene Cruz's designs for
textile and public art, the station and adjoining bus stops feature
vibrant, colorful patterns inspired by the traditional arts of Africa, South America
and India. This design was honored by being showcased on the covers
of the Yellow Line's Opening Celebration and informational brochures.
