This page is subdivided by station, beginning with Union Station, northeast toward APU/Citrus College. The images and information have been made available courtesy of Metro and through the photographs of Ruth Wallach. Go to the Edward R. Roybal Metro Gold Line Eastside Extension page to see the public art at the stations from Little Tokyo to Atlantic.
In 2008-2009, a collaborative project between the USC Libraries and researcher Michael Several, titled "Going for the Gold: California Stories on the Los Angeles Metro Gold Line: Communities, Public Art, and Placemaking," received funding from the California Council for the Humanities' California Story Fund. The project documents the creation of public art on the Gold Line through oral histories of artists, administratiors, and youth who were involved in the project. Tapes and transcripts of the interviews are archived at the USC Libraries. All entries are written by Michael Several.
