We are suckers for city-themed art that helps you display some civic pride while beautifying your apartment. Though actual route maps from the Metro system have been popular display items for years, this creative take on that theme highlights the beauty of the lines and colors of the system. With no station stops or text on the map itself, this canvas is a work of modern art for DC residents (past or present).

There are several sizes of the Washington DC Metro print available from bigNickelgraphics in a variety of media to fit any wall or budget. Never been to DC? Never fear — there are several other designs available: Boston's T, the London Underground, Chicago's Loop, the Chicago EL, and the Bay Area BART. We're surprised not to see a New York City version, but perhaps in the future.
