Kimball Junction Transit Center, Park City

1899 W. Ute Blvd.
(next to the Summit County Library)


Six new bus shelter sculptures commissioned by the Summit County Public Art Advisory Board are part of a new public art exhibit that explores the dynamics of movement. The sculptures are constructed of aluminum ribbons that render the movements of Summit County residents into a visual form. Each was fabricated from data collected by sensors worn by locals while in motion -- cross-country skiing, walking, hand-cycling, bobsledding, and mountain biking.

The artwork was developed by a team of collaborators, led by Summit County artist Kevin Arthofer, in partnership with Summit County Transportation and Engineering Departments, Park City Transportation Department, and the Summit County Public Art Advisory Board.

Artist Kevin Arthofer will discuss the creative vision and technology behind the installation as part of his artist talk.
