Metromorphosis/Birth of a Station, 2008
Fused glass in platform windscreens
Evoking the original Algonquin meaning of Mosholu smooth stones, Metromorphosis/Birth of a Station at the Mosholu Parkway station uses swirling, energetic compositions to evoke the force of rivers over time, which transform rough rocks to smooth stones.
Artist Corinne Grondahl created her work in fused glass, with fourteen panels built into the windscreens on each platform. The northbound side is named Metromorphosis and the southbound side Birth of a Station. The reds and blues can be seen from inside and outside of the station, providing a beacon of beauty at this centrally located station in the Bronx.
