The underpass makeovers are one of the city’s most artistically unique beautification projects. But they also exemplify how beautification can achieve functional as well as aesthetic goals. ... The overhead artworks provide much needed illumination and visibility within otherwise dark, forbidding spaces. While the art is pleasing to the eye and stimulates the mind, the geometric compositions and sculpted patterns of light emitted by the art make passing through or occupying the underpasses much safer for pedestrians, bikers and drivers.

Beautifying these underpasses, making them amenities rather than eyesores, radiates beyond the underpasses. This project enhances the character and quality of the District’s evolving NoMa neighborhood, an overarching goal of the NoMa Parks Foundation, which is simultaneously developing several public parks in the area.
