Metro and the City of Long Beach will hold a free poster signing event for artist Christine Nguyen on Saturday, Jan. 11 at Stearns Champions Park Social Hall. Nguyen was commissioned by Metro to create the artwork for the Through the Eyes of Artists poster series. The program commissions local artists to create original artworks that express the uniqueness of Los Angeles County neighborhoods as a way of encouraging people to take Metro and explore destinations served by the agency.
“The poster [which is currently on display inside buses and trains throughout the Metro system] shows the diversity of local ecologies while evoking the beauty of Long Beach in a playful, fantastical, underwater cosmic dreamscape,” says Nguyen. Nguyen, who is also a musician, also will be performing with fellow musicians Michael Wysong and Whalesound during this event.
