Yes, there is a subway in Los Angeles. Even some Angelenos don’t know about it, and most have never used it. And every station on the Red Line is decorated with fascinating, colorful artwork that’s worth a look.
May 5, 2013People enter and leave the North Hollywood station, on the Los Angeles subway’s Red Line. There are three wide ceramic layers. The topmost layer depicts the 1950s San Fernando Valley: pickup trucks and tract houses. The middle layer is the Valley in the early 19th century: Catholic missions and rancheros. The lowest layer is the Valley in the era of Native Americans, before Europeans arrived, and it depicts their remnants: baskets, petroglyphs and bones.Bret Hartman/For The Washington Post
