My friend, Elaine Chiu, is pictured above with her mother Diana. Diana Chiu's beautiful brush painting as part of an art exhibition at the Alhambra City Hall Lobby from Feb 24th-27th 2013. This painting was stolen. They believe the painting was taken between the night of the 26th and the morning of 28th.
Diana Chiu is not a famous artist, but her art means a lot to her and her family. It took her months of hard work to finish each piece. She is heartbroken at the moment. It's one thing to steal money from an artist, but to steal an artist's painstaking works of passion, that is 100 times more painful to the victim.
The theft has been reported to the police and they advised the Chius to use Facebook as a way to spread the word to let people know if they will ever come across this painting, know that it is a stolen piece and please contact Elaine Chiu on FB or call the Alhambra Police Department (211 S 1st St Alhambra, CA 91801 (626) 570-5168). Please share and help.
