Introduction to the contents of this site
This collaborative project between the USC Libraries and researcher Michael Several is titled “Going for the Gold: California Stories on the Los Angeles Metro Gold Line: Communities, Public Art, and Placemaking.” The project was funded in 2008-2009 by the California Council for the Humanities through its California Story Fund. It documents the creation of public art on the Los Angeles County light-rail Gold Line through oral histories of artists, administrators, and youth who were involved in the project. Tapes and transcripts from the project are archived at the USC Libraries.
