Metro Art recently installed an artwork by Erwin Redl at the currently under construction Expo/Crenshaw Station.
This new artwork — titled Inside Out – Outside In – Inside Out — spans three glass walls of the station’s entrance pavilion and can be seen from the street.
The artwork is inspired by the stained glass across the street at the West Angeles Cathedral, an anchor of the Crenshaw community that is within view of the station’s entrance.
The artwork’s main feature is transparent trapezoids that cast patterns of color into the station by day to create a spectacular sundial effect and reflect the vibrancy of the surrounding neighborhood. By night, the interior light from the station will spill onto the surrounding sidewalk – a multicolored beacon that illuminates a pathway for passersby.
