This event is in the past

Wing Luke Museum Seattle Chinatown-International District (Seattle)
This dreamy new exhibition of Asian Pacific American science-fiction artists begins in a mock-up of a child's bedroom. Star Wars sheets cover the bed. Constellations of stars twinkle on the ceiling. From there you travel into the worlds created by local artists such as comic Stasia Burrington and sculptor June Sekiguchi, plus national comics artists such as Greg Pak. Along the way, you can play with cool VR and AR exhibits, and learn about representations of Asian Americans in film, television, and literature. It's fun for the whole damn family, people, and it serves as an excellent review of the significant contributions Asian Americans have made to the world's collective vision of the future. by Rich Smith
