TileLink was the first permanent artwork installation commissioned by Arts in Transit. TileLink demonstrates how the impact of public art can be a rallying point for the revitalization of neighborhoods and communities. St. Louis-based artist, Catherine Magel, involved local students and neighborhood residents to contribute to the project with hands-on involvement in the creation of the individual tiles that line the pedestrian path from the Delmar Park & Ride lot to the MetroLink train station.
