"Going Away, Coming Home" by Oakland Artist, Hung Liu
OAK is a small airport, easy to get in and out of, and used frequently by Bay Area residents. The title "Going Away, Coming Home," is perfect and always resonates with me. The long corridor of painted glass with the symbolic cranes and silent but present farewell/welcome by a friendly artist seems so - California. We wish eachother well, we like tourists, we think of ourselves as a bit of a melting pot culture out here. I love that old saying; "There are places you leave, and places that never leave you."
