On Saturday, October 21, join Metro Art and our Grand Avenue neighbors for Grand Ave Arts All Access. L.A.’s home for world class arts and culture opens its doors with architecture tours, art exhibitions, musical performances, food and more!
11 am, 1pm and 3pm
Grand Ave Arts/Bunker Hill Station art tour
Join Metro Art for an underground tour of the rail station, which features large-scale artworks by Ann Hamilton, Pearl C. Hsiung and Mungo Thomson. Stroll through the concourse and enjoy works by Samira Yamin, temporarily on view. Tours include insights about the artworks, artists and art-making processes. Tours start at the Metro Art booth on the station plaza level at S Hope and W 2nd Streets.
11am – 4pm
Metro Art Bus
The Metro Art Bus brings art to the streets, Metro riders and passersby in a unique and unexpected way. Metro Art’s rider portrait series and exhibition, We Are… Portraits of Metro Riders by Local Artists, is a bright and uplifting mobile gallery that honors the personal stories of Metro riders.
Look for the Metro Art Bus along Grand Ave, take a seat and learn about the stories, and processes behind more than 40 portraits that cover the exterior and interior of the bus. Taken together, these works offer a unique window into the way we move around Los Angeles.
11am – 4pm
Grab a digital memento of your art-filled day by snapping a photo with family and friends and having it sent directly to you.
Two Metro stations take you right into the heart of the action. The A and E lines serve the newly opened Grand Av Arts/Bunker Hill station, and the B and D lines serve the Civic Center/Grand Park station at Hill and 1st Streets. Numerous bus lines also serve the area.
Metro Art encourages you to Go Metro to the many arts and cultural events taking place in celebration of National Arts and Humanities Month around the County!
