The exhibit, titled “Life is But a Dream” features red boats created by Torres and is inspired by a verse from her favorite childhood bedtime song sung to her by her mother. “The work represents the positive and satisfying feeling that one gets when everything is moving perfectly in the right direction,” Torres said.
