Wall Art/Photography at Copley station

Postby rhodiecub2 » Wed Apr 27, 2016 5:17 am

Does anybody who took the photographs at Copley station? This is what I'm referring to:

I think these were put up in the late 60s/early 70s. I'm just wondering if anyone knows who took these pictures.

Thanks

These are the people who developed the design for the MBTA modernization back in the 1960's. https://c7a.com/work/mbta-modernization If no one else on the forum has a quicker answer, you might try contacting them

I have the publication from C7A's exhibit at the ICA in 1967. The architects were Bedar and Alpers; their firm closed in 1977 but Bedar now runs Bedar & Associates Architects in Needham. I don't have any information on the photomurals, which were installed several years after the ICA exhibit.
