‘Universe,’ Amir H. Fallah’s three-panel mural for the Cerritos College Student Center


Fallah had a clear vision that he was going for when creating this artwork for the College.

The botanical specimens were chosen by the artist to showcase their connections to the regions of the world from which Cerritos College’s students originate.

The jewelry that is shown in the murals represents the common family heirlooms and potential sources of financial aid brought by immigrants and refugees as they travel to new lands.

The use of lockets within both murals contain icons of the many academic disciplines that are taught here on campus, which helps those immigrants as well as their descendants to improve their lives and also better the world.”
