Metro Art Moves is a free series of regularly scheduled and special tours of artwork in the Metro Rail system. Tours are led by trained Metro Art Docent Council volunteers and provide insights into the artworks, artists and art-making processes. Special tours heighten the passenger experience in novel and engaging ways through the perspective, experience and knowledge of artists and cultural experts.
The tours take about 2 hours and are approximately 90% walking so wear comfortable shoes! The docents distribute TAP cards that are pre-loaded with an all-day pass allowing tour participants to ride the Metro Rail & Bus system for free. Attendees may keep the TAP cards and reload them for future use.
