June 25, 2022: Supervisor Holly Mitchell joined Metro at the dedication ceremony of the future Leimert Park Station. Thank you to Metro, the residents, and community leaders for ensuring that the art, culture, and history that is unique to Leimert Park is felt and honored.
The station includes a hand-cut glass mosaic mural by Artist Mickalene Thomas spanning 68 feet on the concourse level wall of the station. The artist integrated many of the natural and architectural hallmarks of Leimert Park Village into the mural, which was originally created as a photo collage and later transformed by skilled artisans into a unique and durable glass material specifically for the project.
Metro plans to open the K line through Park Mesa Heights fall 2022.
