The Yellow Car and Los Angeles
Beginning Monday, November 21, 2022: Union Station Waiting Room Gallery
ORGANIZED BY METRO ART IN COLLABORATION WITH THE METRO DOROTHY PEYTON GRAY TRANSPORTATION LIBRARY AND ARCHIVE.
The Yellow Car and Los Angeles, an original exhibition organized by Metro Art and featuring materials sourced from the Metro Transportation Library and Archive, highlights the Yellow Cars of Los Angeles Railway Corporation (or LARy, for short) and LA’s early buses to offer a fond look back at Los Angeles transit history. Together, these early rail and bus lines are foundations which shaped the Metro system the agency is working to restore today.
The exhibition, which was designed by Metro Art expressly for the Union Station Waiting Room, features reproduction photographs, tickets and other ephemera from the Metro Transportation Library and Archive. Rail car design drawings are side by side with street photographs of the trolleys. Hand-painted place names, map-like dots and lines, and colors in the exhibition’s design are inspired by painted signs and vintage maps (1926-1944) in the transportation library's collection.
We Are… Portraits of Metro Riders by Local Artists
PASSAGEWAY ART GALLERY EXHIBIT AT UNION STATION NOW OPEN

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 featuring 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 We Are… exhibition displays 35 new artworks in the Union Station Passageway Art Gallery along with additional artworks in an expanded online gallery.
