Finding Identity Artist Panel
To complement its exhibition, Finding Identity: Heritage as Inspiration, the Massillon Museum will present an artists’ Facebook Live panel on Thursday, April 20, at 7:00 p.m. The online event is free and open to everyone with no registration required.
In Finding Identity: Heritage as Inspiration, three Asian American artists—Aimee Lee, Chi Wong, and Jordan Wong—share artwork that shows the different ways one’s unique Asian American experience can be brought to life. Guest curator Tim Arai will join the artists on the panel.
Both the discussion and the exhibition enhance the experience of reading the Museum’s 2023 NEA Big Read book selection, Interior Chinatown by Charles Yu. NEA Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest. Complimentary copies of the book will be offered as long as the supply lasts. Learn more at MassMu.org/BigRead.
Finding Identity, which will continue through May 21, 2023, may be seen along with 11 additional galleries during regular Museum hours—Tuesday through Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. The Massillon Museum is accessible and admission is free. Everyone is welcome.
The Massillon Museum is grateful for operating support from the Ohio Arts Council, ArtsinStark, and the citizens of Massillon, as well as marketing support from Visit Canton. This program and exhibition are funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
