Do you think that street art is senseless graffiti, consisting only of obscenities or phrases like “Steve was here”? Think again!
Public art is growing in popularity, and modern public artists are breaking the stereotypes! Street art has transformed into a respectable form of art that is expressive, impressive, and meant for public consumption.
Join Metro Art Rail Tours and discover the world of street art in historic Union Station! You’ll also venture out to Gold Line Portal, Union Station East and inside the Metro Gateway Headquarters Building.
Your knowledgeable guide -- a metro art docent -- will lead you to places generally not open to the public, such as the Historic Ticketing Hall and former Fred Harvey restaurant. You wouldn’t be enjoy these fascinating locations on your own, so this is a chance of a lifetime.
Sounds like a great opportunity, docent it?
Note: The tours begin at the information booth inside the Alameda Street entrance to historic Union Station.
