BETHESDA METRO ESCALATORS IMMORTALIZED IN PAINTING AT BOLOCO BETHESDA
With the escalators at the Bethesda Metro station having gone out of service last night for the billionth time, and the station set to be closed all weekend(!!) for more "repairs" that show zero results, I thought you might like this painting I discovered at the new Boloco restaurant at Bethesda Row.

The artwork by Boston artist Sean Boyce shows what life at the Bethesda Metro station is like when all goes well: commuters traveling up and down working escalators, among impressive modern architecture.
Boyce says he was drawn to the Bethesda Metro station, when he walked around the downtown searching for landmarks to depict in art for Boloco.
He finds Metro to be "one of the most efficient subway systems in the country."
I love this painting, and the one of the Bethesda Metro Center that hangs next to it.
