One of eight glass mosaic art panels, featuring artwork by Tom LaDuke on the station platform at Culver City Station.
This Sunday, when you’re walking, cycling, skating or otherwise playing your way through the streets at CicLAvia, be sure to check out bounties of art along the way! The 15-mile CicLAvia route – the longest yet – connects with six Metro Rail stations, each featuring artwork created specifically for the site. (See map with Metro stations here. Explore Metro Art here.)
Five of the six stations are in downtown Los Angeles and the sixth is in Culver City, the current Expo Line terminus, which features some of the newest artwork in the Metro system.
So here’s an idea: Take Metro to CicLAvia (Expo, Red, Purple, Blue or Gold Lines) and explore L.A.’s unique artistic landscape along the way. Here’s a peek at the art in stations touching the CicLAvia route — from downtown L.A. to Venice Beach.
