ART INTEGRATION: AN ESSENTIAL DESIGN COMPONENT AND VEHICLE FOR COMMUNITY COMMITMENT IN SANTA CLARA COUNTY

The objectives are to relate the way in which an integrated art program can be developed successfully during the light rail transit (LRT) design process in an extremely cost-effective manner, using the Tasman Corridor light rail project in Santa Clara County, California, as a case example; to describe valuable lessons learned in Seattle during the implementation of the Downtown Seattle Transit Project; to discuss the value of an integrated art program as an integral, valuable component of LRT design; and to present the unique community relationships and support that an integrated art program can engender. The Tasman Corridor LRT project is a 20-km (12.4-mi), $530 million light rail extension of the Guadalupe Corridor LRT system in Santa Clara County. The Tasman Corridor final design was completed in May 1995.
