Through the Eyes of Artists

Through the Eyes of Artists

Metro Art’s award-winning poster series commissions local artists to create original artworks that offer their personal perspectives on neighborhoods and places throughout Los Angeles County. Initiated in 2002, over 40 artworks have been featured on posters displayed in Metro buses and trains. This 186-page catalogue features the first 15 years of the series, with images and statements by each artist. This shorter booklet provides a summary of the program.
