|Artwork at Secaucus Transfer Station
Marchesci, San Francisco, CA
Cork created a 30-foot cattail sculpture in the Rotunda. The art is made predominately
from aluminum, stainless steel and titanium. The leaf inserts are made of diachronic
glass; bulbous parts of the cattails are blown glass lit with neon and ambient light. The
glass cattails are filled with three different color neon tubes. The colors used are based
on the natural colors found in the surrounding marshlands and the sky. In designing the
sculpture, Cork wanted to give the sense that an industrial flower had sprouted through
the center of the atrium floor.
Artist: Tim Daly of Hoboken, NJ
Tim created 32 individual acrylic painted murals with views of and from several NJ
Transit lines connected by the transfer station. The images include station clocks, the
catenary systems, rails and bridges, as well as views from trains in places like Raritan
Bay, Jersey City, Boonton, Newark and Ramsey. The imagery looks like a photograph.
Tims murals will hang in the South Mezzanine.
Artist: Mac Adams of Montclair, NJ
Mac created two large (30-feet by 6-feet) mosaics that reflect the winter and summer. A
wetland mosaic with water lilies and pods hangs on the South Mezzanine escalator wall; a
winter scene of a frozen wetland with trees hangs on the North Mezzanine escalator wall.
Artist: Stacey Farley of Peekskill, NY
Stacey created three large tile murals for the north and south station platform area.
Staceys murals (each 6-feet by 12-feet-5) depict the history of transportation and
how it evolved. The murals entitled "Iron Horses" are meant to capture the
spirit of the times at the turn of the century when railroads were in its heyday. Her
imagery provides text throughout, giving you the history of the time and the place during
1815-1915. Next to Staceys murals you will find text completed in tile, describing
the context of the mural.
Artist: Valeri Larko of Summit, NY
Valeri created four large murals depicting railroad bridges and their environment. Two
murals are 5-feet-5 by 27-feet-6 and two are 5-feet-5 by 6-feet-8. Bridges have tremendous
visual impact. They create strong, colorful compositions that will appeal to a large
audience. Bridges are also potent symbols of transition over still waters. The murals will
hang in the North Mezzanine.
