It Came as a Joyous Daybreak

May 6 @ 8:00 am - May 30 @ 5:00 pm

Located in Long Beach’s own Cambodia Town, It Came as a Joyous Daybreak (2023) is a light projection facing Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue on the façade of The Vault Warehouse. This work serves as a call to solidarity within our communities and neighborhoods, for the sake of the children. The title is captured from Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s I Have a Dream speech, wherein he envisions children playing together in freedom. This work was made in prayer for the innocent. Sponsored by The Philip and Muriel Berman Foundation, Los Angeles, CA; in partnership with 18th Street Art Center, Santa Monica, CA; and the MRH Fund for Artists, Southern California; with additional support from The Vault Warehouse, Long Beach, CA. With special thanks also extending to Long Beach Arts Council for the nomination, and to Janie Nowell and Oliver Krisch for their encouragement and support.
