In a project entitled, CSULB Soars @LGB, CSULB has now partnered with the airport to supply them with outdoor artworks, that will remain on display in the public plazas of the airport terminal’s on a six-month rotation, when it will be replaced with new student work.

Wolek’s piece Luggage for Native Soil has thematic ties to the state of California, boasting a set of suitcases with desert plants growing around and inside of them. Wolek described her piece as testimony of the mountainemigrating from one place to another and opening her mind to new possibilities. Krakowski’s The Mountain is a welded and steel cut geometric piece that provides a different perspective on what “space” means in today’s internet-based age.

Congratulations Ms. Wolek and Mr. Krakowski!!
