Art on TAP cards are Metro’s smallest artworks that fit inside pockets and accompany transit riders on their journeys.
The works featured on Art on TAP are part of a series of rider portraits commissioned by Metro Art that evoke intimate and universal stories of riders who use LA’s vital transit system.
A set of 3 limited edition Art on TAP cards featuring works by LP Ǽkili Ross, Daniel Barajas and Bodeck Luna are now available at TAP vending machines (TVMs) at the stations listed below. Cards are $2 plus the cost of fare and available while supplies last.
The portraits are also viewable on digital displays at each of the A Line (Blue) stations and in the Union Station Passageway Art Gallery, as part of the multi-site exhibition We Are…Portraits of Metro Riders by Local Artists.
Art on TAP cards are available at the following locations
