Amtrak Displaying Anniversary Graphics in Stations

This design by Ye Rin Kim is among those being displayed in Amtrak stations.

Amtrak will be putting up displays of graphic photo canvasses in its stations around the country as part of its 50th anniversary celebration.

The displays are 10-by-8 feet in size and feature designs created in a collaborative project involving Amtrak and the Maryland Institute College of Art.

Eleven people submitted designs that were judged by Amtrak staff members with the work of two MICA students, a recent MICA graduate, and a current Amtrak intern selected as the winners. Those designs will appear on the canvasses.

The winning designers were Victoria Grzesiak , Glen Ellyn, Illinois, an Amtrak intern who is a fourth-year student studying economics and design at the University of Pennsylvania; Allison Hao, Fremont, California, a fourth-year MICA student majoring in graphic design; Ye Rin Kim, Tongyoung, South Korea, a fourth-year MICA student majoring in graphic design; and Demond Young, Toledo, Ohio, a recent MICA graphic design alum.

Amtrak is encouraging passengers to post photos on social media of themselves in front of the displays with the hashtag #Amtrak50.
