The '87 is a one-of-a-kind modern art painting by artist Janet Antepara. The '87 is a deconstructed childhood memory of my first earthquake. As Sophia Petrillo from the Golden Girls would say, “Picture it. Los Angeles, 1987, October 1st, 7:42am. The Whittier Narrows earthquake hits. I’m seven years old...” I took details of the memory that stood out the most like the much-hated pink jumpsuit with elephants I was wearing, the movement of the concrete walkways, the shaking of the apartment buildings surrounding me, the rattling of the window blinds, turned them into abstract elements and assembled a visual representation of my memory.
