As both an artist and educator, Tom Stanley finds that the best ideas can be generated by young people, whose energy and intuitive approach to images and words can be refreshing, direct, and honest. Located nearby the station, the Hidden Valley Neighborhood Association helped steer Tom Stanley’s station art concept. Through working with staff and teachers at Martin Luther King Middle School and Hidden Valley Elementary School, Stanley formed a creative partnership resulting in the final designs for the project.

Houses will also appear in thirty two fence inserts, which will extend the horizontal length of the station and be filled with cutout abstract shapes, with their roof peaks ascending above the fence line to provide visual diversity.
