This tour will be led by a Metro docent and we'll be stopping at 4 to 6 different Gold Line stations. Along the way, we will learn about culture, myth, and architecture that appear in the public art works along the Gold Line including the theme of the "Water Street: River of Dreams" at the Lincoln/Cypress station and the interactive public plaza at Mission Station. There's much more that can be listed here, so come and join us for what will be a fun morning exploring some of the great artwork that exists along our public transportation system.
