URBANA, IL – The Asian American Cultural Center is proud to feature a group art exhibition for the Boneyard Arts Festival brought to you by community members and students at the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign. The new art exhibition entitled “Fighting for Visibility” will be exhibited starting April 3, 2018 to May 12, 2018. This art exhibit shows how Asian Americans are breaking stereotypes.

Curator Tiffany Mei stated, “I came up with this theme to showcase the many ways Asian and Asian Americans fight for visibility in the world. Asian/Asian Americans are rarely seen in the media and appreciated for their talents. But through this art exhibit we can see Asian/Asian Americans expressing themselves in their own different ways.”

“Fighting for Visibility” features art work from various artists including; Afifa Chaudhry, AJ Poe, A Na Kim, Heather Hua, Holly Situ, Jihee Lee, Lingjun Jiaang, Mandi Shi, Mew Tachibana, Mohan Kaur Tracy, Reikin Ahokawa, Sylvia Peng, Tiffany Mei, Veronica Clement and Xudong Guan.
