Normal Uptown Station Art

There was some concern expressed about spending so much money on art for the Uptown Station. I happened to read an article that discusses the benefits of public art, presenting examples of how it can attract attention (and dollars). But the examples focus on art external to buildings -- murals and neon lights. Art inside the Uptown Station will probably not attract that kind of attention. It will, however, provide a nice environment for travellers and give local artists a chance to share their work. Maybe the clock on the corner of the station will attract attention.
