Garden Takes Hold in CTA Railcar, If Only for a Moment

This past Saturday, as part of the Art on Track installation series, artist Joe Baldwin, with the aid of volunteers, built into the body of a rail car a pretty convincing flower and vine garden using 400 square feet of sod. The beautiful contrivance then proceeded to spin around the loop for five hours in the middle of the day. Baldwin is apparently seeking funding to plant his plantings in an open-bed CTA car and run them around town. [CTA Tattler]
