DESCRIPTION: McLean Metro Station is a new station on the Washington Metro Silver Line from the downtown city centre to Washington Dulles Airport.

"Voyagers" Represents both the physical and cognitive idea of travel and transportation, large human figure forms that depict a community in transition overlaid with poetry from past and present Poet Laureates from Virginia.

The poems have directly influenced the artwork and relate to moods and the day-to-day human condition that effect our daily lives and also act as a springboard for thoughts to begin and end our day – on our own totally unique "Voyage"

The Artwork is completely hand painted with ceramic enamels on two surfaces then the poems are acid-etched out of the colour fired and laminated.
