Please join the cast and crew of the United States of Asian America Festival 2010 for the 13th Annual Gallery Opening Reception. Partake in Asian Inspired Tacos provided by Kung Fu Tacos and CurryUpNow and drinks while sampling some of the festival art and performances offered by Bay Area Asian Pacific Islander artists and organizations.
(Re-) Claim Curated by Jennifer Banta and Pamela Wu Kochiyama presents the work of Mark Baugh-Sasaki; Kathy Fuji-Oka; Su-Chen Hung; Christina Mazza; Judy Shintani and Truong Tran in a critical investigation into the discarded objects of the everyday or what gets left behind and the redemptive process that renders an object “fundamentally new.”
In a series of monthly workshops designed to inspire and challenge its participants, internationally acclaimed artist Flo Oy Wong and other guest artists offered fresh approaches to creative expression. From doll-making to personal narratives to mandalas, each workshop led to deeper exploration and discovery of both self and the art form. This exhibit of the resulting work shows the range of creativity that unfolded in this process, during class and afterward. Participants ranged in age from pre-teens to senior citizens.
