Red and Pink on the Brown Line

This very bright mosaic (?) was installed at the Chicago Avenue stop on the CTA Brown Line. The CTA has been installing art - mural, mosaics, sculptures - at many of the remodeled stations through out the city. I'm trying to find out a little more about this but haven't been successful. I'm curious about all the symbols ... and wouldn't the colors have coordinated better on the Pink Line or the Red Line?

its a playful piece. I'll have to check it out next time I head to the loop.

Maybe the person who chose the mosaic was color-blind. Brown is sort of a neutral, maybe that was the thought.
