OPENING NIGHT RECEPTION:
"Car Free in a Car Culture: Through the Eyes of a Bus Rider"

Join us for light refreshments and a guided narrative of the photo exhibit with photographer Edward E. Solis at 7:00 p.m.


Solis is a 41-year-old Angeleno, born in East L.A. and raised in Whittier. He is a 21-year music industry veteran who views public transportation as a chauffeured form of transport; Solis equates car-free with carefree. For the past 10 years, Solis has singlehandedly raised awareness of and promoted the car-free lifestyle across many communities and cultural environments. He sees himself as a global advocate for a carefree and eco-friendly lifestyle.

The exhibit begins May 16 and runs through Tuesday, August 16, and is open during regular library hours except when the auditorium is in use.
