Will Power Allegory


The 14 colorful panels of Audrey Chan’s Will Power Allegory feature fluid vignettes of people and symbols from Los Angeles’ Little Tokyo, Arts District, Skid Row, Bronzeville and Gabrielino/Tongva Tribe.



Clare Rojas’s artwork will honor the presence of the natural world within the urban landscape and highlight humanity’s shared rhythm with the land, water, and sky.

Buffer Zone


For Little Tokyo/Arts District Station, Hirokazu Kosaka created six smooth granite benches with concentric circles of black and white, simulating a Zen archery target with station canopies in the shape of Japanese archery bows. Buffer Zone was displayed at the station from 2009-2017 in coordination with the artist.
