The project consists of multiple panels, each one containing parts that might be found in a "low rider bicycle" model kit. The design is presented as if the parts could be snapped out of their frame and reassembled. Small portraits, reflective of faces found in the community, are embedded within the artwork. The artwork is intended to serve as a colorful “bridge” between the Library’s entrance and the Children’s area. Potential also suggests a metaphor for the process of transformation. It demonstrates how, in the creation of a low rider bicycle, an old junk bicycle frame is modified,restored and transformed into something new and beautiful.
