In the lobby, AmeriCorps Museum Educators Dylan Joy and Sam Ratcliff sent an Amtrak model train traveling through some curious scenes. Dylan described their inspiration:
"We both enjoy traveling, different landscapes, different cultures. We attempted to create the sensation/phenomenon that occurs while traveling (on a train, in an automobile, by foot, on a bike, etc.), when the traveler is exposed to a new world, a new landscape, a new feeling.
In our scenes, the train goes from an ordinary town scene through a portal into a world that is unknown: one of large ants, worms, spiders, and flowers that dominate the landscape. It speaks to the possibility of discovering a new world after going through a tunnel or around the bend."
