Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection holds photographs of public art pieces at Metro Rail Blue, Red, Purple and Green Line stations. The photographs were taken by Metro Art Department employees, primarily during the 1990s.
LACMTA's Art Department was created in 1989 under the predecessor agency, Southern California Rapid Transit District (SCRTD). Working to incorporate public art in transportation projects, the department was involved in the design of stations along the heavy and light rail transit lines, dedicating 0.05% of rail construction costs specifically to art.
