All Through the Eyes of Artists

Through the Eyes of Artists was initiated in 2003 to creatively celebrate the many cities and neighborhoods Metro serves from the unique perspectives of artists. In the tradition of colorful travel destination posters, Metro Art commissions artists to capture the magic of these wonderfully varied places. Their artworks are then translated into elegant poster designs and displayed inside a fleet of more than 2,500 buses.
