Journeys: LA Communities Through the Eyes of Artists

Commuters passing colorful artwork in lightboxes in LA Union Station.

Project Description

On display in Union Station Passageway Art Gallery, June 2017-August 2018

Each artwork displayed in this passageway focused on a particular neighborhood or city within Los Angeles County “through the eyes of artists.” The artists captured the look and feel of each place from a personal perspective, highlighting special, surprising, unexpected or lesser-known facets of those communities. Lush urban gardens, backyard barbecues, street parades, cemeteries and even a fantastical underwater world are among the subjects for these idiosyncratic works of art.

Following in the tradition of colorful travel destination posters, the artworks are part of a series—typically presented on posters inside buses and trains—that encourages riders to explore communities throughout the expanding Metro transit system.
