I worked with Alan, Ken and their family to paint a welcoming mural of people enjoying noodles and making dumplings.

When I started painting I was going to only paint a mother and daughter making dumplings. Then I took some photos of Alan and his brother who is an MTA bus driver eating noodles and everyone in the family agreed that it would be fun to have them in the mural. 

I learned Alan’s story, met the whole family and ate a lot of delicious noodles!
