Chicanx Art Tour Of DTLA

October 15, 2022 from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join Metro Bike Share and Metro Art on October 15 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm for a bilingual (English & Spanish) community ride featuring the Chicanx Art Tour of DTLA.

Metro Bikes, helmets, and water will be provided at no charge, please RSVP here to save your spot!

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, take a 2-mile, flat, beginner-friendly ride through Downtown Los Angeles and learn about Chicano/a/x history and communities through public art with the Chicanx Art Tour of DTLA. Whether telling the story of a historic moment like Eduardo Carrillo’s El Grito or recognizing the continued challenges and surpassing resilience of those who migrate to the United States today in Alfredo “LIBRE” Gutierrez’ Transportapueblos: Los Resilientes, this route offers firsthand storytelling through art. Still, it does not tell the complete story of all Chicano/a/x or Latino/a/x people – we recognize the vastness and complexities of diasporas within these communities in Los Angeles County and beyond.

The tour will reference the following Union Station artwork during the ride. Come back for a look at these and other extraordinary artwork throughout the Station.

  • Paseo César Chavez by Elsa Flores, Roberto Gil de Montes, and Peter Shire
  • La Sombra del Arroyo by East Los Streetscapers
  • Guardians of the Track by Michael AmescuaTo learn about other artworks in the Metro system, visit metro.net/art.
