We Are...Portraits of Metro Riders By Local Artists
Union Station Passageway Art Gallery
We Are…Portraits of Metro Riders by Local Artists celebrates the diversity of Los Angeles County and community of transit riders through portraits of Metro riders 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. Featuring thirty-five new artworks in the Union Station Passageway Art Gallery and additional artworks in an online gallery, the multi-site exhibition and series of events is presented by Metro Art in collaboration with Metro’s Office of Civil Rights, Racial Equity & Inclusion and Communications departments. The exhibition is on view in 2022.
Featured artists in the Passageway Art Gallery are Aiseborn, Eric Almanza, Kristina Ambriz, Jazmine Atienza, Susu Attar, Christen Austin, Moses X. Ball, Daniel Barajas, Chelle Barbour, April Bey, Javier Carrillo, Carolyn Castaño, Gregg Chadwick, Sean Cheetham, Cat Ferraz, Carla Jay Harris, Alepsis Hernández, Bodeck Luna Hernandez, Lanise Howard, Bryan Ida, Sheila Karbassian, Kaylynn Kim, Miles Lewis, José M.
