Helping Build Livable Communities through Art in Transit

Red bird

Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (Metro) provides the National Capital area with safe and reliable public transportation. Metro's Art in Transit Program installs artwork throughout the Metrorail system to enhance travel via Metro.

Art in Transit works with artists, community groups, government agencies, and businesses to install artwork that captures the spirit and vitality of the region, making travel by Metro more attractive and inviting.

The wonderful murals, mosaics, stained glass panels, sculpture, and other artwork on display at Metro stations demonstrate Metro's commitment to innovative design and high quality public art.

The artwork installed throughout the Metrorail system adds beauty to stations and inspires a sense of belonging in the hundreds of thousands of customers served by Metrorail each day.

The art projects included on this website show how Metro helps build livable communities through Art in Transit.
