Art in the Metro

Eye-catching art decorates the Metro.

Artists transformed two Farragut Metro Station entrances with stunning artwork that lights up the Golden Triangle streets and neighborhood. Area workers and visitors can see the art when they walk through Farragut Square Park, grab a bite to eat, or enter the Metro. The Golden Triangle BID partnered with the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities to donate the artwork to the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA).

Working with these public and private partners, the BID has installed the following art projects in Metro Stations in the Golden Triangle:

  • Farragut Spheres: an installation of intricately designed metal discs with a warm glowing light in the Farragut West Metro entrance on 17th Street. The art was designed and created by artist Michael Enn Sirvet.
  • Pulse: illuminated refractive tile artwork in the Farragut North Metro entrance on K Street evoking Admiral Farragut’s voyage on the Mississippi River. The art was designed and created by artist Jefre Manuel.
