Jan. 3, 2021: "The Queen's Gambit," exhibit at Union Station in Los Angeles, features a large chessboard suspended above a sculpture of the fictional main character Beth Harmon. During the mini-series, Harmon often visualizes a chessboard on the ceiling of her room. Netflix erected the art installation in mid-Decamber to promote its popular mini-series. Record sales of chess sets occurred after the popular show appeared on Netflix. The art exhibit is opening for viewing - masks and strict social distancing is required—this exhibit's scheduled to close on Jan. 11. Below is a version of exhibit photographed through a glass ball.
My thoughts on images past and present.
