From: Ben Welsh


To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the California Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

I request an electronic copy of any photos, plans, memos and other documents for the public art installation planned Little Tokyo rail stop being added as part of the Regional Connector in electronic format.

I would like to request all:

* Images of the artwork
* Architectural elevations identifying artwork locations and scale
* Artist contracts

I also request any files Metro has prepared outlining the logos and signage at the stop.

All of these file types have been previously released for the Grand Av Arts/Bunker Hill stop, so I expect they can released for this site as well. You can find examples of the previous responses below:

https://www.muckrock.com/foi/los-angeles-county-358/la-metro-grand-ave-artsbunker-hill-public-art-plans-104234/

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Ben Welsh
