Offering a tribute to a tributary

Adjacent to several major medical facilities and near the world's largest wholesale marketplace, Medical/Market Center Station has a unique pedestrian traffic flow between its grade level and semi-elevated platform areas.

At one time, the station site was on the banks of the Trinity River, which played a decisive role in the early history of Dallas. The site was inhabited by Native Americans, a fact denoted by the basket-weave pattern of station pavers.

Medical/Market Center Station Art
Trinity Falls, artist Benson Shaw's striking mosaic mural representing a waterfall, pays homage to the river. The mural features 300 pavers forming a stream overflowing on to the pedestrian areas of the station. Shimmering iridescent glass in vibrant colors create the illusion of a waterfall's movement and rainbow mist.
