Van Gogh and Metro pair up on SmarTrip Cards

Saturday - 10/19/2013, 7:09am  ET

WASHINGTON - Metro is teaming up with a local art gallery to celebrate the works of one of the world's most celebrated artists. Four limited-edition Van Gogh commemorative SmarTrip Cards are now available for purchase.

It's a partnership between Metro and the Phillips Collection that coincides with the gallery's exhibition Van Gogh Repetitions, which runs through January.

Each reusable plastic card comes pre-loaded with $8 in stored fare value, and if you present your SmarTrip Card at the Phillips Collection you get $3 off admission and 2% off purchases in the gift shop.
