Located on the ceiling of the Figueroa Street entrance to the 7th/Metro MTA Metro Rail Station portal is Terry Schoonhoven's trompe l'oeil mural "City Above." When riding the escalator to the station one's view of the mural changes. By framing each painted panel in an oval, Schoonhoven was able to bring fantasy to his composition by incorporating forced perspectives and by rendering the ceiling as a sky, the building disappears. The "City Above" portrays diversity of workers and visitors in Downtown. Look closely and you will see the artist depicted as a "wino" wrapped up in a blanket.
