Metro L.A. station art & fun
Did you ever check out Watts Village Theater Company’s old annual event Meet me at Metro?
Created by the theater company with the goal of connecting arts, public transportation & our Los Angeles communities, Meet me at Metro was a guided narrative that included perspective on Metro L.A. art & local neighborhood history.
It was just what we history nerds needed to stop rushing in & out of Metro stops – cool, interesting & thought provoking facts, with a fresh perspective on the artwork all around us at every stop.
We’re mentioning this event from 4 years ago, that as far as we can tell is no longer around, because we have to give props where props are due. The stories, performance & music were great, & it really gave us a deeper appreciation for all Metro art & the importance of people connecting & sharing their stories.
We traveled across the Gold Line learning about the local neighborhoods, hearing stories about local (historical) people, & really connecting with Los Angeles in a unique way.
