Regional Connector Art Program

Regional Connector Transit Project

The Metro Regional Connector Transit Project extends from the Metro L Line (Gold) Little Tokyo/Arts District Station to the 7th Street/Metro Center Station in downtown Los Angeles, allowing passengers to bypass Union Station to transfer to the A, E, B and D Lines (Blue, Expo, Red and Purple). The nearly two mile alignment has three new stations associated with it, for which seven artists were commissioned to create permanent, public artworks: Andrea Bowers, Audrey Chan, Mark Steven Greenfield, Pearl Hsiung, Clare Rojas, Mungo Thomson, and Clarence Williams.

For her artwork, Andrea Bowers will imbue the glass walls of the station’s entrance pavilion with messages of unity and democracy through her translation of the slogans “El pueblo unido jamás será vencido” (The people united will never be divided) and “By independence we mean the right to self-determination, self-government and freedom.”
