Jim Isermann designed panels decorating the Mertro Customer Service building, circa 2006

In 2006 Metro commissioned artist Jim Isermann to create an eye-popping design to wrap the façade of the bland service center. Isermann painted the building in bright green and installed 500 aluminum panels inspired by the sunscreens often used to “modernize” Southern California buildings in the 1950s and 1960s. Demolition of the customer service center to make way for subway construction is scheduled in June 2015. Isermann’s panels will be removed and stored for future use at another Metro facility.
