Project Overview

We Ride On - Trolley Stop on Madison Ave @ Pauline Street

There is always a message or a record of some event from my environment or imagination in my work.
— Harriet Buckley

A part of MATA's Madison Avenue Trolley Line, the artwork at the Pauline Trolley Station was designed by artist Harriet Buckley.  Buckley's design for the station was inspired by actual MATA riders. These riders are depicted in the painted reliefs on the columns at the station. Buckely writes of her work that "There is always a message or a record of some event from my environment or imagination in my work."
