The loss of 16 year old Culver City High School student Riley Chart to suicide in 2020 was a personal tragedy that has sparked increased local support for mental health, suicide prevention, LGBT awareness. There is now an art installation dedicated to Riley in Mar Vista, on Grand View Boulevard.
‘The Wings’ were part of this years Pride celebration and have been dedicated to the Memory of Riley Chart and in support of The Trevor Project.
Riley’s mother, Bridget McCarthy, offered her thanks “to the talented Lalo Marquez for donating his ‘Wings’ and the wonderful Susan Klos for the space.”
The Wings can be viewed between Charnock Road and Venice Boulevard, with a request that the owner of the location is not a docent for the display, and requests to have their privacy respected.
