CTA's Year of Public Art Project

During the Year of Public Art, the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) partnered with the City’s Dept. of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) to create the CTA Lightbox Art Project, with lightbox installations in train stations, highlighting the perspectives of Chicago artists and neighorhoods. Four of Tonika Johnson’s photos were selected to be installed in the light boxes on the Indiana Green Line “L” stop. Her image titled "Grow Radiant," of the girl picking a dandelion in a vacant lot, was also included in the Chicago Cultural Center’s 2017 exhibition 50X50 Invitational/The Subject is Chicago: People, Places, Possibilities, which presented the work of one artist from each of Chicago’s 50 wards.

Four of Tonika Johnson’s photos are installed in large light boxes on the Indiana Green Line “L” stop as part of Chicago Transit Authority’s (CTA) Year of Public Art project to highlight the perspectives of Chicago artists and neighborhoods.
