ON VIEW THROUGH SPRING 2024: Journeys Continued… LA Communities Through the Eyes of Artists builds on an exhibition presented in 2017 and focuses on neighborhoods and cities within Los Angeles County “through the eyes of artists.” Local artists capture the look and feel of each community from a personal perspective, highlighting special, surprising and/or lesser-known facets of that place. Neighborhood parks, street food vendors, family bicycle rides and local landmarks along daily commutes are among the subjects for these distinctive works of art.

Union Station stands at the site of Los Angeles’ original Chinatown. This once vibrant community of families, businesses, and associations with roots going back to the middle of the 19th century was a place where residents persisted, grew rapidly, and thrived. Where You Stand: Chinatown 1880 to 1939 invites participants into the center of the vibrant community through a multi-dimensional experience. Installed in the Union Station Waiting Room Gallery, view the exhibits' historic photographs, listen to oral history recordings, and use augmented reality to see artifact materials superimposed within locations around Union Station. Audiences can explore the site’s historic layers, formerly a collection of alleyways, streets, and buildings, and home to thousands of Chinese residents in the late 19th to early 20th century Los Angeles.
