Purple (D Line) Extension Transit Project

Metro’s Purple (D Line) Extension is a three-part rail project that will begin at the intersection of Wilshire Boulevard and Western Avenue, extending westward for about 9 miles with seven new stations.



Karen Hampton’s artwork for the Northeast Entrance draws inspiration from her childhood experiences riding the RTD bus along Wilshire Blvd, examining how travel can broaden one’s access to different cultures.
