Metro Artworks

Only Light, Only Love

Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project

The Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project will extend from the existing Metro C Line (Green) and will travel just over eight miles to the Metro E Line (Expo) and will serve the cities of Los Angeles, Inglewood and El Segundo; and portions of unincorporated Los Angeles County. Fourteen artists were commissioned to create permanent, public artworks at the eight 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. A forthcoming publication celebrating artists, poets and cultural producers of the Crenshaw/LAX project area is also in development.

Ingrid Calame collaborated with youth through the RightWay Foundation to create rubbings of the physical environment—from furniture and instruments to architectural elements such as doorways and signs, all found in the neighborhood.
