EXPO 1 Banners

Know Thy Self


In order to beautify what is often a community eyesore for the duration of the construction phase, Metro Art commissioned veteran mural artist Charles Freeman to design and paint an original mural on the large scale construction fences at the corner of 1st and Lorena Streets.

MacArthur Park site (1991-92)

This temporary construction fence, which consisted of 30 painted plywood panel murals, was erected around the drained lake in MacArthur Park in an effort to mitigate construction of the Metro Red (A) Line MacArthur Park Station.
