Location and design

Jefferson/USC Station is located along the east side of Flower Street, adjacent to the 110 Freeway, just north of Jefferson Boulevard. The station's entrance is on the north side of Jefferson/Flower. Located at the lower end of the Figueroa Corridor, the station serves the northeast corner of the USC main campus, as well as the Galen Center sports complex. Two blocks west of the station is the Shrine Auditorium.

The station's art was created by artist Samuel Rodriguez. The untitled installation creates "a visual narrative that includes fragments of building facades, vintage rail cars, realistically rendered human figures, and fictional characters." [3]
