Metro Art Portrait Series: More People Than You Know is designed to feature and engage the different neighborhoods surrounding the stations of the Metro system. This rotating exhibition features portraits of patrons created by artists connected to the neighborhoods served by the A Line (Blue) commissioned for the Metro Art Portrait Series.
The stories expressed in More People Than You Know recognize that the visibility of an artist’s well-honed craft in the a digital landscape improves the customer experience through perceptive considerations of people and place.
More People Than You Know artists were recommended by curatorial advisors with ties to local and cultural organizations.
The twelve portraits were presented on newly installed digital screens in all stations along the corridor and featured on limited edition Art on TAP cards. The A Line (Blue) is the first transit corridor with this new cultural amenity on the re-opening of the renovated A Line (Blue) in 2019.
An accompanying booklet, in English and Spanish, offers insights into each work.
