Ray Ballard installs tiles at one of the streetcar stops on North Fourth Avenue. The artist says her cactus motif was inspired by the colorful and playful nature of the avenue. Eight of the streetcar line's 17 stops will get original artwork.
Fourth Avenue got a little more colorful this week. A crew from Progressive Hardscapes installed the first piece of the $765,000 streetcar art project between Sixth and Seventh Streets along Fourth Avenue.
