About the Art Site
Artist: William Mitchell
Although the work, which covers one wall, appears to be ceramic it actually is fiber glass with natural materials inlaid. The work was commissioned by the architect, Maher-Martins who designed the Richmond station. Mitchell designed the wall around the fountain at Lake Merritt station, as part of the BART project. The artist is English. He was aware of culture and geography of Richmond, as the theme of the mural is underwater sea life and symbols of the Aztec civilization.
