“Station to Station: A Nomadic Happening” Art Train Visits Union Station Next Week

8:50 AM PDT on September 20, 2013

We picked up this news tidbit from The Transit Coalition Newsletter. Visit their website to sign up for the newsletter, join the coalition, or make a donation.

In New York, "Station to Station: A Nomadic Happening" art train kicked off and started its trek across the nation. This brain child of video artist Doug Aitken uses an Amtrak train to transport musicians and artists who will perform at 10 stops on the train's trek from New York to California.

The sides of the train would be fitted with LED lights forming a very long video screen that responds to the speed of the train and surrounding weather. LACMA is one of seven museums along the route that will partner with Station to Station and receive a portion of sales from tickets sold for music performances. The train will stop at Los Angeles Union Station on Thursday, September 26.

The event is already sold out, but it's a great example of how Union Station is rebranding itself as a destination, and not ust a train station. Follow the train by visiting the official website.
