We Are… Portraits of Metro Riders by Local Artists

Celebrating the diversity of Los Angeles County and the community of transit riders, We Are…Portraits of Metro Riders by Local Artists is an exhibition that features portraits presented throughout the Metro system and online. Each rider portrait has a story that is personal and universal, intimate and immediate—a single story among the many stories of 840,000 daily riders on Metro, and each told by an artist with ties to neighborhoods served by Metro.

The We Are… exhibition features 41 artworks with select pieces featured in the Union Station Passageway Art Gallery, Art on TAP cards, and the Metro Art Bus.

A 104-page catalogue features the artwork and statements by each artist.
