Project Description

For her artwork, Andrea Bowers will imbue the glass walls of the station’s entrance pavilion with messages of unity and democracy through her translation of the slogans “El pueblo unido jamás será vencido” (The people united will never be divided) and “By independence we mean the right to self-determination, self-government and freedom.” The artwork is inspired by the station’s location in downtown Los Angeles, which is a regular meeting place for people from all over the region to exercise their political voice through rallies, marches and street theater: City Hall, the LAPD Headquarters, Hall of Justice and the US Courthouse are all within a two-block radius of the station.
