If you’re ever in the downtown Los Angeles area and you happen to be on the Metro Red Line you should really get off at the ‘Civic Center’ stop. It features an amazing and slightly disturbing installation by artist Jonathan Borofsky. The installation consists of six fiberglass men in flight and is meant to represent the human spiritual voyage, a nice theme for a metro station.
The flying men also resemble falling men, where the slightly disturbing aspect comes in. It’s almost like they’re swooping down on the rest of us.
Besides the art installation there’s also things to do, within walking distance is the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, the Little Tokyo area of Los Angeles where they have some really good food and the Disney Music Center where you can both tour a Frank Ghery project and maybe catch a concert.
