"The Heart of Los Angeles" consists of thirty photographic artworks from five accomplished artists: Suzanne Adelman (artwork pictured), Sam Comen, Kevin McCollister, Jim McHugh, and Catherine Opie. These photographs showcase Los Angeles Union Station's role in the community in a variety of ways, ranging from the station's cultural significance and architectural heritage to transit usage and the station's social relationship with surrounding neighborhoods.
As this art installation will be on prominent display for one year, it will be seen by thousands of visitors. Through DSA Phototech's LED Light Boxes, visitors to the station will view the works of "The Heart of Los Angeles" in an optimal fashion thus enhancing the overall viewing experience.
