Transport Yourself! Riding the Wave

Lucy Blake Elahi

TRANSPORT YOURSELF! Riding the Wave is a public art project commissioned by Long Beach Transit. Eleven colorful smooth steel medallions illustrate the development of transportation in the Long Beach/Carson area.

Ambling over a triangular plot across from the Metrolink and Long Beach Transit bus stations sixteen perforated panels carry colorful illustrations of specific methods of transportation local to this area’s history. The panels zig-zag along the south and east edges of the site effectively providing decorative, informational viewing to bus and Metro riders.

Medallion Images include: Feet, Tongva Canoe, Horse, Stagecoach, Railroad engine, Red Car, Airplane, Model T Ford, Bicycles, and 2 buses.
