AAPI Heritage Month at The Center

May is AAPI Heritage Month, and at The Center, we are hosting events all month long to celebrate and recognize the vital role that Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders have played in our shared history. See below for a list of exhibits, events, and resources. 

Threads of Justice Exhibit

In honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, we’ve partnered with the Asian American Advocacy Fund (AAAF) to feature a pop-up exhibit titled Threads of Justice. Inspired by the 1985 Garment Workers’ strike in Chinatown, Threads of Justice honors Asian American stories with the hope of creating a better future for AAPI communities. 

Threads of Justice features the works of 12 artists: Leah Abucayan, Helen Choi, Sayma Hossain, Tanjina Islam, Killamari, Herok Kim, Wihro Kim, Gabby Lee, Neha Patel, Sanithna Pansavanh, Ghazal Qadri, and Jonny Warren. 

Threads of Justice will be featured at The Center from May 11 to May 31, 2024.

To kick off the exhibit, we invite you to join us for the opening reception on Saturday, May 11, from 1pm-3pm at The Center. You’ll have the chance to meet the artists and watch a beautiful performance by Catching Mangoes Dance, a nontraditional dance company uplifting hyphenated-American experiences through movement and storytelling.
