George Crespo
Latin American Stories, 2006
MTA Arts for Transit

As an installation artist and an author illustrator of children’s books, George Crespo decided to use this installation as a way to tell a story.  His images represent stories from six different areas of Latin America: The Condor Prince from Peru; How the Birds Brought the Rain, from Mexico; The King That Wanted to Touch the Moon, from Dominica; How the Sea Began, from The Dominican Republic and Maria Cenicienta: A Puerto Rican Cinderella.

As they await their trains, commuters at the Jackson Avenue Station will be transported to another time by these childhood stories.
