The Metro E Line (Expo) recently installed digital screens on its station platforms, and in addition to Metro customer information and third-party advertising, the new equipment also features Metro Art programming.
Digital screens are the last place passengers can see portraits of Metro Art’s multi-site We are… exhibition of portraits of riders. Community Art Advisors worked with Metro Art to ensure that the commissioned portraits displayed on the new screens each relate to the neighborhoods served by E Line (Expo).
Here are the nine portraits featured on the E Line (Expo) digital screens:
- Susu Attar, Self-Portrait with the Elders
- Gregg Chadwick, Frida Cano (Line E)
- Sheila Karbassian, Beautiful Santa Monica
- Miles Lewis, A walk and a conversation
- Carla Jay Harris, Self-portrait in motion
- Maria Pineres, Leo
- Javier Carrillo, Jose Carrillo, El Taquero
- J Michael Walker, Lisa D on the E
- Sean Cheetham, Ebony
There are plenty of ways to see the artwork even if Line A (Blue) or Line E (Expo) aren’t part of your normal route! The twelve portraits of riders A Line (Blue) and nine E Line (Expo) are part of the portrait collection of the exhibition We are… Portraits of metro users by local artists.
You can find them among the 41 portraits inside the Subway Art Busin the Union Station Passageway Art Gallery and in the online gallery on the Metro Art website. In addition, A Line (Blue) portraits are also featured prominently in recent Art at TAP cards too!
