The Asian Art Museum may be closed because of the coronavirus pandemic, but it’s still able to debut a new commissioned work visible to passersby on Hyde Street.
The mural illustrates the journey of a line-drawn figure, outlined in black and accented with touches of green.
“My introduction to the public world, my case, gave me a very strong identity that I did not want,” Miller tells The Chronicle.
The visibility of Miller’s work from the street, however, meant that the mural could still be featured, no matter how uncertain plans are for the city’s post-COVID reopening.
When Miller initially saw the space at the Asian Art Museum where her mural would be installed, it felt like “an extreme gift.”“They didn’t put strict guidelines on me,” says Miller.
