Metro Art Moves is a free series of regularly scheduled and special tours of artwork in the Metro Rail system.

Special tours heighten the passenger experience in novel and engaging ways through the perspective, experience and knowledge of artists and cultural experts. Tours are free. Reservations are not required but are appreciated so that the Docent Council can anticipate numbers. Drop-ins are also welcome.
