Long Beach through the eyes of artist Christine Nguyen

Long Beach 2

Have you spotted the latest poster from the popular Through the Eyes of Artists series riding rail and bus? Long Beach artist Christine Nguyen designed an imaginary, underwater dreamscape that playfully intertwines jellyfish, sea vegetation and caves with iconic Long Beach landmarks, including the Astronaut Islands, El Dorado Nature Center and the Walter Pyramid at California State University, Long Beach.

Metro commissions local artists to create original artworks for the Through the Eyes of Artists poster series, which expresses the uniqueness of Los Angeles County neighborhoods, as a way of encouraging people to take Metro to explore destinations served by the agency. The newest design, celebrating Long Beach, is the 30th poster in the series.

  1. The poster is very attractive. I like it. However, similar to the poetry postings on buses, the font size is much too, too small. I would like to read these things from another seat, or when standing. But here, the white lettering is too small. To read it, I would have to lean over the man’s shoulder, and I don’t think he would like that.
