The Other Side: Chinese and Mexican Immigration to America exhibition opens at the USC Pacific Asia Museum this Friday. The exhibition presents a collection of visual narratives about the Chinese and Mexican immigrant experiences, and one of the installations features pieces of Metro rail.
Artist Hung Liu’s Jiu Jin Shan (Old Gold Mountain) installation, made of more than 100,000 fortune cookies over a railroad track, pays tribute to the Chinese migrant workers who lost their lives building the railroad. To complete this installation, the artist borrowed spare rail panels (tracks) from Metro.
Check out this installation and the rest of the exhibition via Metro. Ride the Metro Gold Line to Memorial Park Station, then walk 1 block south on Arroyo Parkway, then 4 blocks east on Union. You can also take Metro Bus 264/267 to Los Robles/Union.
The exhibition will be on display from Feb. 7 – July 20. The museum is open Wednesday – Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. General admission is $10.
