2. A Field of Wild Flowers

Roberto Juarez titled A Field of Wild Flowers

At the Station Master’s Office is a 1997 mural by Roberto Juarez titled A Field of Wild Flowers that depicts a lush garden landscape with all sorts of colorful flora. Supposedly, the work was designed to appear like a train passenger was looking out the windows of a slow-moving train.

Using artistic materials like urethane, varnish, and gesso, as well as rice paper and peat moss, the work has a variety of textures to add to the mural’s authenticity. The work also mimics some of the Terminal’s architectural features, such as details of fruit, acorns, and garlands.
