Indianapolis creative Jamie Pawlus makes what she calls “Transit Art” -- large installation pieces using words and phrases that make people think as they are on the way from point A to point B.

Some of her most popular pieces have been seen by IndyGo Red Line riders -- two signs that say "Coming Soon" and "Seriously" -- and airline travelers might be familiar with a sign that says "Happiness" with an arrow forward.

From WFYI's Arts and Culture Desk, Jill Ditmire spoke over the phone with Pawlus about her most recent installations -- a simple but meaningful window design on East 10th Street in Indy, and a historic and humorous large scale public transit stop in downtown Chicago.
