Turner's two illustrations of hungry birds searching for food in springtime are larger than life and etched into the glass windscreens of the passenger shelters. In contrast, the artist's smaller leaf cutouts make up the surface of the blue metal shelter benches. Both designs befit the natural environment preserved in the South End community.
