UPTOWN — Want a behind-the-scenes look at the multimillion dollar renovation of Wilson Station?

Everybody's Coffee, 935 W. Wilson Ave., will be chronicling the work on the massive plan scheduled to end in 2017 through pictures this month courtesy of Kevin Utz and Kirsten Lefeldt.

Utz, a quality assurance manager for CH2M, and Lefeldt, a quality assurance manager for Walsh Construction, would meet at the coffee shop while working on the project and began comparing photos of the site each had taken. Eventually, the two partnered with Everybody's Coffee for the exhibit called "Wilson Station: Behind the Scenes."

The photos capture the demolition of the tracks over Broadway and the auxiliary entrance on Wilson Avenue, cranes extended high above the neighborhood and concrete pours, according to a news release.

From 6-8 p.m. on Nov. 11, the duo will talk about what they've seen and uncovered while working on the project at the coffee shop.

The exhibit will run through Jan. 2. All benefits from the exhibit will go toward Cornerstone Community Outreach, 4628 N. Clifton Ave.
