The Addison Transit Center features a vaulted ceiling. During the development phase of the project, the community committee expressed interest in representing as artwork a recently demolished cotton gin on Addison Road that was originally operated by a founding family in Addison. Mr. Lamb proposed four photomontage murals on the vaulted ceiling surface. The architect, Nestor Infanzon, suggested splitting the curved ceiling, revealing beams that represent the rafters of the old gin. In the photomontages, Mr. Lamb used as a base these same cotton gin rafters. Ghosted within the planes of the gin rafters are images symbolic of the past, present, and future of Addison.
