BPL Exhibit :: An Elevated View: The Orange Line



An Elevated View: The Orange Line
On display through January 19, 2013
Boston Public Library | Wiggin Gallery

The Boston Public Library recently opened a new exhibit which shows the history of the Orange Line MBTA Line. The exhibition is part of the Boston Public Library's Building Boston initiative, a citywide celebration of Boston's public spaces.  

An Elevated View: The Orange Line, goes into the history of what the Orange Line used to be, much different than we know it today. Twenty-five years ago, the MBTA relocated the Orange line, which was once an elevated rail that defined Boston's Southwest Corridor. Two years before the project, a private nonprofit agency URBANARTS created a program called, Arts in Transit. The goal of the project was to document the corridor in transition from Forest Hills to Dover Station.
