The growing subways and dedicated bus-ways of the Los Angeles Metro System are filled with great artistic surprises. Among these are the two great tile projects in the Universal City (Campo de Cahuenga) and North Hollywood (NoHo) Stations.
You can arrange for docent lead tours of the city's subways.
The North Hollywood Metro Station's design artist was James Doolin. The powerful tile murals above the entrance stairs and on the platforms was done by Anne Marie Karlsen. The murals were created to reflect the history of the NoHo District. They are appreciably bright and effective.
The San Fernando Valley deserves are a great Museum of art and culture, in the heart of the Creative Capital of the World.
