Asian American Resource Center
Join us at the Asian American Resource Center for the opening of two new Art Exhibits: Storied and Pop Japan! Refreshments will be served. Free and open to the public.
Stories of heritage have inspired artists Katherine Leung and JU Salvant to create vibrant bodies of work. Tuvan culture [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuvans] is reflected in Leung’s Faces of Central Texas as she incorporates the folklore of golden light gods in her paintings of her Asian American friends while Salvant draws upon the personal history of a young girl’s journey from Vietnam to America and created a stunning visual story, Red Sky in the Morning. Both artists bring relevance to these narratives as they highlight the importance of remembering the journey of a culture whether fable or historical.
Storied is a part of the Asian American Resource Center’s Community Exhibition Program (CEP).
A group exhibition curated by Vincent X. Torres, Pop Japan depicts an array of notable characters from Japanese television, film, anime, and manga that have left their mark on popular culture.

Exhibitions open from October 4th 2018 to December 14th 2018.
