Vermont/Sunset Station is a heavy-rail subway station in the Los Angeles County Metro Rail system. It is located at Vermont Avenue and Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, among the East Hollywood neighborhoods of Los Feliz, Silver Lake, and Little Armenia. This station is served by the Red Line.
The intersection of Vermont/Sunset is home to three major area hospitals: Kaiser Permanente, Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA), and Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center. The station's main entrance is on the northeast corner of Vermont and Sunset, next to the Saban Research building of CHLA. There is also an elevator-only entrance on the northwest corner, in front of Kaiser.
Michael Davies is the artist for the Vermont/Sunset station, depicting several different themes, the main ones being medical colors (blue) and slides blended with a futuristic space theme. The medical slides placed into circular orbits on the floor of the upper platform area (theme - planets, solar system) are real slides of human cellular structures, including red blood cells, chromosomes, egg and sperm.
