Project Area: Chinatown
Project: Chinatown Professional Medical Center
Project Location: 711 W. College Street
Project Type: Developer Initiated
Integrated onto the black steel fence at the Adobe Street parking lot entrance of the Chinatown Professional Medical Center is a 8'h x 15'w mixed-media installation composed of rusted bells, pitchforks, and shovels. Along the top half of the fence structure are four etched panels. Each panel bears a photographic image from the history of Chinatown depicting an herbal shop, a produce peddler, agricultural workers, and immigrant women. Text in English and Chinese tells the early history of Chinatown and complements the photographs and rusted tools.
