ART HAPPENS ANYWHERE - "15,000 & MORE"

“15,000 & MORE,” by artist Connie DK Lane, is a memorial tribute to the lives lost from the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in California. The concept is based upon Chinese ancestral worship of deceased relatives and family members with a special ceremony. A mixture of silver and gold ingots differentiates the deaths of males and females from the coronavirus.

“15,000 & MORE” will be on display in the Central Library foyer in February 2021. This temporary art installation is sponsored by the Glendale Arts and Culture Commission, through funding from the Urban Art Program, in partnership with the Glendale Library,  Arts & Culture department.
