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 ArtBus! Plus, the exhibit will be accompanied by all-ages community engagement programs, including tours, talks, and more.
