Metro is very excited for artist Gary Leonard’s solo show “Angels on Main Street” at the Fine Arts Building in downtown Los Angeles. There is an artist reception tonight with live jazz from 6 to 8 p.m. at The Fine Arts Building (811 West 7th Street), which is conveniently located one block from the 7th St/Metro Center Station (Metro Red, Purple or Blue Lines). The exhibit will be in place through June 8th.
Leonard has photographed portraits of a cross-section of Angelenos in front of wings created by artist Collete Miller on a roll down gate on Main Street. The wings signify the goodness that each of us has to contribute to Los Angeles. The Angelenos that Leonard captured in his photographs include pop culture maven Charles Phoenix, Historic Downtown Los Angeles BID Executive Director Blair Besten, L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti, Traffic Officer Montenegro, journalist Patt Morrison, former City Council member Bill Rosendahl and chef and author Paul Greenstein.
Some of Leonard’s 17 photographs on view at the Fine Arts Building are featured as part of his Metro-commissioned work, “Community of Angels,” at the Metro Red Line Vermont / Beverly Blvd Station.
