Art and transit lovers were treated to scenes from Shakespeare as part of a special Valentine’s Day art tour of the Metro system. The Metro Art Moves series of tours highlights Metro’s diverse collection of artworks, heightens the passenger experience in fun and engaging ways and boosts public perceptions about transit.
Traveling from Union Station to Hollywood, the well-attended tour explored artworks in Metro stations. Actors from the Independent Shakespeare Company regaled tourgoers with scenes involving the tender topic of love from select Shakespearian plays.
Besides being a fun activity for transit riders, art tours advance Metro’s goal of attracting new riders, particularly during non-peak hours.
