The Inside Track: Art on CTA

Currently, there are 48 CTA rail stations that feature 60 exceptional and unique works of art -- each with its own interesting story about the artist, how the piece was created or what the artist’s intentions were when creating it. More than just a pretty decoration, these remarkable works of art are intended to not only make the public transit environment more inviting, they also tell the incredible stories about Chicago’s historically vibrant and diverse communities.
