33 - VA Medical Center Station

Honoring the past, present and future

VA Medical Center Station ColumnVA Medical Center Station WellArt and design pay tribute to military veterans who come for treatment at the VA Medical Center directly behind the station, and to the historic Lisbon Community, an affluent African American area, first settled in the late 1880s because of its life-sustaining artesian well.

Schoolchildren representing the neighborhood's future contributed drawings and written messages thanking veterans for their military service and imaginatively "remembering" pioneer life. The windscreens feature their lively scenes.

A circular medallion in the station pavers symbolizes the artesian well and contains a poem, "To the Well," by Patricia Zontelli.

Design Artist: Frank Frazier
