This installation presents contemporary and indigenous approaches to the sky as a realm of discovery.

 

The Chumash of Southern California believed in a mystic game of lots between the Sun and Sky Coyote as the North Star foretold the new year. The upper level pays homage to solar and celestial instruments. The Station’s lower level includes tile installations inspired by Chumash pictograms by collaborating tile artist, Viqui McCaslin.

 

Commissioned by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority for the Long Beach Boulevard Metro Station.
