We Are… Portraits of Metro Riders by Local Artists
Where do you find inspiration on your journey?
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 new We Are… exhibition begins with 35 new artworks in the Union Station Passageway Art Gallery and
even more artwork in an expanded online gallery.
The exhibition launches the 2022 Metro Art We Are… program that will include limited edition TAP cards,
digital displays in Metro stations….and even a special Metro Art Bus! Plus, the exhibit will be accompanied
by all-ages community engagement programs, including tours, talks, and more.
The exhibition is now on view into 2022. For more information and to view the online gallery, please visit our website at metro.net/weare
