"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.
Photo Lightbox Series
The Lightbox series features photo-based artwork in five Metro stations to engage a broad range of Metro riders en route to their destinations.
The Yellow Car and Los Angeles
The Yellow Car and Los Angeles, Metro Art’s new exhibition in the Union Station Waiting Room Gallery, offers a fond look back at two foundations of public transit in the region: the "Yellow Cars" of Los Angeles Railway Corporation and the transition to LA’s first years of bus service. Together, these early rail and bus lines shaped the Metro system we have today.
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.
