Through the Eyes of Artists was initiated in 2003 to creatively celebrate the many cities and neighborhoods Metro serves from the unique perspectives of artists. In the tradition of colorful travel destination posters, Metro Art commissions artists to capture the magic of these wonderfully varied places. Their artworks are then translated into elegant poster designs and displayed inside a fleet of more than 2,500 buses.
This 186-page catalogue features the first 15 years of Metro Art’s award-winning poster series, with images and statements by each artist.
Posters in the series have been mentioned in ART LTD, Public Art Review and garnered a Print Magazine Regional Design Annual Excellence Award, Tranny Merit Award, “Fresh” Illustrations Award from Illustrations Magazine Annual, Los Angeles Society of Illustrators Silver Medal, a Society of Environmental Graphic Design Award, a HOW Magazine In-House Design Award, UTIP (Union Internationale des Transports Publics) Special Recognition, a PIASC Print Excellence Award, and featured in the Pasadena Museum of California Art’s California Design Biennial.
