Preliminary sketches of artwork concept, and sketches of proposed elements to build artwork.

Project Description

The artwork for Metro’s Center Street Project facility will be a multistory, 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.

Artist Statement

“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.”
