Art's A Trip

This sounds like a fun idea. Ride the LA Subway (yes, LA has a subway) and check out the art installed a various stations. We did something similar when the North Hollywood extension opened a few years ago. Docents lead the tours (about 2 hours in length) and the ride is FREE. Tours are held the first Saturday and Sunday of each month. Saturday's tours depart from Hollywood and Highland and Sunday tours start at Union Station.

From the MTA Web site...

"Recognizing that art can bring a touch of humanity to an often mundane
commute, Metro commissions artists to incorporate art into a wide array of
transportation projects. From bus stops to rail stations,
streetscapes to bus interiors, construction fences to poetry, art creates a
sense of place and engages transit riders."
