Here: Arts & Culture Along the K is a multimedia art exhibition showcasing the Metro Art K Line art program at the Museum of African American Art at Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza.
Three shiny new Metro rail stations in downtown LA mark the completion of the Regional Connector Transit Project. The A, E and L Lines are now two rail lines — the new A and E Lines. That means more direct rides between Azusa, East LA and beaches. Eight artists were commissioned to create site-specific, integrated artworks for the three new stations.
Metro Art’s "Through the Eyes of Artists" poster series is celebrating its 20th year! For this commemoration, 20 posters from our archive will be on display on our buses in the coming months. You can also get them for free at Customer Service Centers while supplies last!
"Journeys Continued... LA Communities Through the Eyes of Artists" builds on an exhibition presented in 2017 and focuses on neighborhoods and cities within Los Angeles County “through the eyes of artists.” Now on view in the Union Station Passageway Art Gallery.
A new season of episodes offer new perspectives shared through oral histories with local artists, business owners and community leaders. Episodes traverse sounds from the LA Filipino/a/x Diaspora to the Cumbia Sonidera scene on Broadway to the rave scene in the San Gabriel Valley, and beyond. 🔊 Listen live every 2nd and 4th Monday at 7pm.
The K Line serves the communities of West Adams, Jefferson Park, Baldwin Hills, Leimert Park, Hyde Park, Inglewood, Westchester and more. Fourteen artists were commissioned to create integrated public artworks at the stations: Ingrid Calame, Eileen Cowin, Kenturah Davis, Dean Erdmann, Sherin Guirguis, Carlson Hatton, Mara Lonner, Rebeca Méndez, Geoff McFetridge, Erwin Redl, Kim Schoenstadt, Jaime Scholnick, Shinique Smith and Mickalene Thomas.
