The 24 foot long Brightline Train Station Mural, commissioned by Brightline, curated by Nicole Henry and created by street artist Smog was unveiled on Saturday, January 23rd 2016 at the Brightline West Palm Beach Station construction site.
The goal was to continue to beautify downtown in places that are normally not where art is seen. Smog created the 24-foot long mural. He is one of Florida’s best graffiti artists, known on the Miami scene for his impressive 3D style and life-like detail. Currently living in South Florida, Smog was born and raised in Paris, France.
The Brightline Train Station Construction Site is on the sidewalk bordering 500 block of Clematis Street, across from Subculture coffee shop. Brightline is the name of the new express train service that will connect South Florida to Orlando, which will be a smart, new way of getting around Florida. The Brightline station in Downtown West Palm Beach is expected to get travelers and commuters into the city and Palm Beach County faster and more comfortably than ever. The station will be located between S. Rosemary and S. Quadrille, east and west and between Datura Street and Evernia Street, north and south.
Brightline Train Station Mural by Smog gives that feeling of a modern and convenient rail experience passengers will enjoy for riding the rail to and from West Palm Beach without worry.
West Palm Beach will be one of the first cities to enjoy service when trips to and from Miami begin in 2017. Full service between Miami and Orlando, with stops in West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale, will start soon after.
