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.
Through the Eyes of Artists
The latest poster by artist Emily Kiwa Tanaka honors family-owned businesses and a tradition of Japanese gardening found in Harbor Gateway. Through the Eyes of Artists was initiated in 2003 to creatively celebrate the many cities and neighborhoods Metro serves from the unique perspectives of artists.
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.
