Three Wongs: Chinatown Photographs
May 2 through May 24, 2012
Reception May 2, 5-7 p.m.
The M. Rosetta Hunter Art Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of Chinatown-inspired photographs created by local photographers Dean Wong, Rick Wong and Barry Wong. Though the trio share the same surname, they are not related by blood, but rather by their lifelong passion for the American Chinatown and their visual exploration of their culture and heritage. Each draws on his Chinese American experiences and childhood memories for inspiration, reflecting the influence of those Chinatown roots. Three Wongs: Chinatown Photographs coincides with Asian Pacific American History Month, commemorating the contributions of a diverse community to the building of a nation.
