The Yellow Car and Los Angeles

The Yellow Car and Los Angeles, organized by Metro Art in collaboration with the Metro Dorothy Peyton Gray Transportation Library and Archive, was created for the Union Station Waiting Room Gallery. The exhibition features reproduction photographs, rail and bus design drawings, tickets and other materials from the Metro Transportation Library and Archive. It also incorporates hand painted place names, map-like dots and lines, and colors inspired by period signage and vintage transit maps (1926-1944) in the library collection.
