You might say there’s an art to riding trains in Los Angeles nowadays.

Rail passengers passing through downtown’s Union Station are finding themselves part of vibrant tableaus by artist Alexa Meade.

Meade set up a temporary studio Thursday in the historic waiting room of the 1930s-era transportation hub and painted a model while inviting passers-by to don painted clothing and props and step into the scene.

Commuters were invited to take selfies of the living artwork.

The interactive art installation kicks off Union Station’s summer entertainment program and runs through Sunday.
