Rename the Boylston T station to Emerson College

This petition had 892 supporters

We are students of the Civic Design and Art Studio course at Emerson College. This Fall, the class is working on the topic of the "Transportation Safety" and taking the Boylston-Tremont intersection as our specific site. Students will work together in groups to produce a transmedia intervention at the intersection that consists of a physical transformation as well as a participatory media campaign or artifact. Our partners for this course are the City of Boston's Vision Zero program and the MA State Department of Transportation's Safety Department. For our final project, we (Nia Asim, Aren Kabarajian and Iris Raiken) are proposing to our partners to rename and redesign the Boylston T stations.

We primarily want to change the name of the station to Emerson College, to signify the college area. We hope to make this change as seeing other colleges in Boston have T stations named after them (ex. Northeastern and Boston University). We then hope to brighten up the structure and make it look more appealing by adding color and art installations. We want to add artwork over the station to represent our students’ creativity. We overall want to make it clear for commuters where they are in Boston when getting of the T station, and as students of Emerson College, we want to have a T station represent our school, campus and student body. 

To help us with our mission, please sign our petition. Your signature will show our professor and class partners that students feel this way also. Thank you in advanced for your help.
