Metro Art is launching its most recent exhibition, Journey Continued: LA Communities Through the Eyes of Artists, at Los Angeles Union Station on April 18. Journeys Continued is a supplement of Metro Art’s Through the Eyes of Artists series, which seeks to encourage riders to explore communities throughout the Los Angeles metro area by means of vibrant travel posters that highlight the special spirits of those communities. The exhibition reveal will run from 10 AM to 12 noon and will be open until the end of the year, featuring twelve works of art from twelve distinct neighborhoods.
Six artists featured in the exhibition will be on-site of the opening day, including Jasmine Delgado from Studio City, Levi Ponce from Pacoima, Miki Yokoyama from Malibu Bluffs Open Space, Roberto Benavidez from El Sereno, Stas Orlovski from Expo Park, and William Acedo from Irwindale. Each of these artists' unique interpretations of the communities they hail from are helpful to the perception of these communities to Metro riders who might not be familiar with them. To complement the exhibition, special collectible TAP cards will be released featuring artworks from the series, and free art tours of Union Station including the Journeys exhibition will be offered.
