In 2015, 14 of more than 1,200 applicants were selected to create art for the new Metro Crenshaw/LAX Line opening 2020.

All the artists were given research about the neighborhood that corresponded to their station, and each project had to have a community engagement component.

Los Angeles Times reporter Dorany Pineda met six of the artists and stopped by LA Times Today to share what the artists have been working on.
