Mount Vernon East
Faceted glass in platform windscreen
Tranquility's 12 faceted glass windscreen panels at the Mount Vernon station convey the shimmering quality of Impressionism in stained glass. The artwork creates the atmosphere of the country through her imagery and color palette, brightening the commuter rail station. As its title implies, the work is calming in its depiction of a natural environment with a grove of trees, a lake, and sky, in shades of green, blue, and yellow. Artist Marjorie Blackwell wanted "the colors and how they are shaped and dance across the windscreen" to give commuters "something to play with, meditate with, and connect with at the station."
