Metro's spring art tours begin Feb. 6 and lead to DTLA dining

The first  Metro Art Moves You free spring tour departs from Union Station on Thursday, Feb. 6. Focused on three downtown stations, the guided, artist-led tours provide unique experiences with Metro’s diverse art collection.

The tour will meet at the Union Station information kiosk just inside the Alameda Street entrance and end at 7th St/Metro Center Station. From there, you can visit several 213 Nightlife dining destinations. Tour participants can save 15% on food at Casey’s Irish Pub, Cole’s French Dip and Ebanos Crossing by showing their valid TAP cards to the server when ordering.

Not sure you’ll be able to make it to this tour? Don’t worry – the spring art tours take place on the first Thursday of each month, which means two more chances to participate on March 6 or April 3.

  1. Are these tours free or is there a fee involved – other than the cost of the metro day pass?

    • Hi Pat,

      The art tours are completely free, and you will be provided with a TAP card – Day Pass included – when you arrive! All you need to do is to get yourself to the meeting location.
