On May 10th, 1869, the First Transcontinental Railway was completed in Utah. This enormous project lasted over seven years and required the contributions of thousands of workers, including many recent immigrants. AAA designed and built the installation for a traveling exhibit celebrating the Chinese immigrants that helped build the Central Pacific Railway. More on this project can be found HERE.June 24, 2020
