The series of artworks integrated to Kehärata Rail Line have been selected as the environmental art project of year 2015. The diploma is awarded yearly for the most important artwork or a series of works by Ympäristötaiteen säätiö. The trust sees that paying attention to the environment and the visuality of railroad areas has so far been quite rare in Finland. It states that Kehärata project is an excellent example in integrating art to public environment starting from the planning phase. By the selection the trust wants to challenge other railroad projects to pay attention to the visuality and the art of the everyday environment of the users. Ympäristötaiteen säätiö is an environmental art trust founded by the Ministry of Education and Culture and the Finnish Association of Building Owners and Construction Clients RAKLI.
