Metro's Arts in Transit program's director should consider contacting the artist.
Speaking of Arts in Transit, the Poetry in Motion program seems intriguing. I'm assuming (it's not explained on the website) that these poems and the graphics that accompany them adorn the sides of busses and possibly Metrolink cars as well.
This poem, by Mary Ruth Donnelly, was my favorite:
Bringing art and life to transit will only endear people to it. Well done on both accounts.
