Metro Art is one of the largest public art agencies in the country. We provide essential information about our program through art guides and publications, ensuring riders can learn about the vibrant artworks they encounter during their journeys across Los Angeles County.

All publications are available to the public in digital and print versions (while supplies last). If you would like to receive printed materials, please call 213.922.4ART.

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.

Forward Motion

Forward Motion is a photographic exhibition displayed on the walls of Union Station’s passageway gallery in 2019. Artist Michelle Asselin created luminous portraits of women who are part of Metro’s Women and Girls Governing Council, which is tasked with achieving a gender-balanced workforce, career advancement for women, and improving safety and mobility for women riders. An accompanying booklet presents each stunning portrait and statements by the featured women.
