Updates on two current opportunities for artists and organizations to improve the transit experience

Metro Art encourages artists and arts/cultural organizations to play a role in enhancing the transit experience for riders through a duo of current opportunities. The art program has a decades-long history of incorporating innovative, award-winning visual and performing arts programs that encourage ridership and connect people, sites, and neighborhoods throughout Los Angeles County. 

Artwork is incorporated into the growing Metro system in various ways, from integrated artworks to temporary exhibitions, creative community engagement, live performances and more. 

Metro Art has new announcements to share about the two open opportunities.
