This image, “Pomona,” by artist Sonia Romero adorns a subway stop in downtown L.A. It’s next to an image of Hermosa Beach, so it seems the MTA may have commissioned art for various L.A. County cities.
The explainer on this one reads: “Romero pulls together a wide variety of cultural icons from the city’s history including the L.A. County Fair, Antique Row, the Arts Colony, the Wally Parks Motorsports Museum, and the goddess of Pomona herself.”
You can find the art on the Civic Center stop of the Red Line. It’s on the Hill Street side of the station, near the escalator to the surface. I discovered it a month ago but (naturally) didn’t have a camera, so I returned last week.
