Asian American Resource Center presents "Storied" and "Pop Japan" opening reception
Asian American Resource Center will open two new art exhibits: "Storied" and "Pop Japan!"
"Storied" is about stories of heritage that have inspired artists, Katherine Leung, and JU Salvant, to create vibrant bodies of work. Tuvan culture 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.
"Pop Japan" is a group exhibition that depicts an array of notable characters from Japanese television, film, anime, and manga that have left their mark on popular culture.
Following the opening reception, the exhibits will be on display through December 14.
