Art that’s meant to move you
See museum-quality local art at the First Street Transit Gallery
Long Beach Transit does more than just support local art. We give artists a place to put their works on display. Since undergoing a renovation nearly a decade ago, the First Street Transit Gallery has become an iconic Long Beach landmark featuring colorful mosaic tiles, poems and quarterly installations of artwork from the community.
Visit the Gallery at the Transit Visitor & Information Center, located on 1st St. between Pine Ave. and Long Beach Blvd. in Downtown Long Beach.
DLBA Presents DTLB Unfiltered
Each year, the DLBA puts out the call for Long Beach residents and visitors to capture their own iconic photographs of Downtown as part of the DTLB Unfiltered photo contest.
This year’s top selections showcase this dynamic neighborhood across four categories: Environment, Architecture, Skyline, and People, Places, Events. Long Beach Transit is fortunate to experience these scenes every day as we connect our community. How many do you recognize?

Workers clean the breathtaking patterns on the 301 E Ocean Blvd building.

This angle caught my attention with the up close on the details of the installation but a peak at the skyline and a steeple poking the sunset sky.

I took reflection from some water in the parking lot across the street.
Category: Skyline Runner-up
I took 20 shots before I was able to capture everything in motion (the traffic in each direction on Shoreline as well as the Ferris wheel and train.)
