New England Chinese Youth Summer Camp's (NECYSC)ExplorAsian Program
Asian, Asian American, Chinese, Chinese American - what's the difference? How does the history of Chinese people in America affect who I am today? What responsibility do I have in making society a better place? These are questions that today's youth are asking and ones that high school artists explore in this exhibition.
The exhibition highlights the different voices of Chinese American youth finding their sense of belonging in America. Artists' works encompass emotion that range from grief and isolation, to hope, empowerment, humor, and self-pride. The most prevalent themes address stereotypes encountered in daily life and at school.
View the artists' experiences through:
- photo collages that represent the artists' various communities
- comic strips that portray experiences growing up
Gallery Hours: Mon-Wed, 9AM-5PM, Sat 10AM-12noon, and by appointment. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
