Baylor University Medical Center
Hall and Junius streets
(2900 Junius St., Dallas 75226 - Mapsco 45M)
This station brings together two divergent groups, Baylor University Medical Center and Deep Ellum. At Baylor, one might find a doctor or a pastor - someone who takes the pulse of the community each and every day. Deep Ellum represents a different kind of pulse, the celebration of life through art and music. Artist Karen Blessen has united these two perspectives, making the connection between the life experiences of Baylor and the life expressions of Deep Ellum. The result is a station with a pulse all its own. Baylor University Medical Center Station is served by DART Rail Green Line trains.

Your guide to the art along the Green Line
Use this guide to plan your tour of Baylor University Medical Center Station.
Baylor University Medical Center Station unites the century-old hospital campus with the equally historical Deep Ellum neighborhood. The station is conceived as a vibrant public space - and, uniquely, includes a two-acre plaza featuring extensive landscaping.
"The concrete is imprinted with a giant fingerprint, with five paths radiating out from it," says Karen Blessen, the station artist. "Each path is emblazoned with a mosaic representing one of the five senses. The gardens and plaza can be many things - a play area, a retreat for friends and relatives of patients at Baylor, and a respite for those waiting for a DART train."
Blessen's title for her public art, On the Pulse, also represents a joining of the two communities. At Baylor, the significance of the word "pulse" is literal; for artsy Deep Ellum it has a more figurative meaning - the celebration of life through art and music.
The platform area reflects that theme, as well. The columns contain a collage of elements reflecting the architecture and character of Deep Ellum and Baylor. The basic fluted column shape is a reference to the original Baylor Hospital columns, while the surface of the column erodes to reveal brick material that refers to Deep Ellum. The windscreens pay homage to people who have shaped each community.
By making the connection between the life experiences of Baylor and the life expressions of Deep Ellum, Blessen has created a station with a pulse all its own.
