Integrated Public Art:
Mary Lucking is an Arizona artist who creates artworks for people to share. Her projects include art incorporated into urban and rural walking and biking trails, public transit stations, college campuses and neighborhood parks. Scottsdale Public Art invites your comments on a preliminary concept for the artworks that are to enhance and contribute to the Mustang Transit project. The idea for the art direction arose out of citizen meetings with the artist in September 2013.
