The Metro Center Project is a new transportation facility close to the Arts District that will provide a central location for Metro security operations, dispatch, and emergency coordination.
Jacob Hashimoto, Untitled
The artwork for Metro’s Center Project facility will be a sculptural relief installation by artist Jacob Hashimoto. This site-specific project will consist of hundreds of small, metal, multicolored components that will be woven, cross stitch-like, into the building’s façade, creating a complex, abstracted landscape that will colorfully weave its way around part of the building.
“The artwork will build from the central idea of connectivity and interdependence…reflecting the values, mission and future ambitions of Metro while acknowledging LA’s aspirations, social dynamics and environmental characteristics.”
In the Community
Local cultural organization, the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center (JACCC) and artists Susu Attar and Kuniharu Yoshida, designed an original, large scale, site-specific artwork installed on the temporary fence at the project site along Center Street during the construction period. The team developed community workshops and an arts activity packet that helped inform the design process. The artwork was digitally printed onto vinyl banners.
