Be part of the artwork at the future Metro Westwood/UCLA Station 

It’s National Arts and Humanities Month— take part in a professional photo shoot and meet Metro Art-commissioned artist Moses X. Ball! 

Join us for this meet-the-artist event to learn about Moses Ball’s art practice and his approach to designing the station artwork for the Purple (D Line) Extension’s Westwood/UCLA Station on Saturday, October 29 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.  

The event is free and open to all ages. It will take place at Geffen Academy at UCLA, a secondary school for grades 6-12 located right next door to the future station.

The photo shoot is with professional photographer, Andreas Branch. Branch will photograph individuals, groups and families for portraits that artist Moses Ball will select from to develop paintings. These paintings will become part of the final artwork for the station. 

Please RSVP via Eventbrite.
