According to BART, Smith’s art is part of the agency’s transit poster series. And as a Bay Area resident, Smith happily embraced the opportunity:

Smith relished the opportunity to create the third in BART’s transit poster series, as a Bay Area local who remembers taking BART as a youngster from home in Fremont to adventures exploring the big city of San Francisco

Smith’s work has a literary journey theme, featuring scenes from classic literature such as Joy Luck Club and The Call of the Wild  come to life on BART. See more artwork and learn more about about Smith’s approach to this project over at BART.
