Legacy

Colorful portrait of child and parent.

Project Description

Legacy depicts the artist’s mother, who has been riding the A Line (Blue) to and from work every day since her family moved to Long Beach from the Philippines. The system’s accessibility and convenience throughout her daily ridership since 2002 provides Myra the freedom to continue her full schedule.
