SUPPORT "AT FIRST LIGHT: ASIAN PACIFIC AMERICA 1970-1990"
Please help our VC Founders raise $25,000 for this exhibition!
Several of us who are the founders of Visual Communications have joined together to create a major exhibition of films and video, photographs, and artifacts that reflect the birth of VC and the development of diverse Asian Pacific American communities. Tentatively entitled “At First Light: Portraits of Asian Pacific America 1970 to 1990,” the exhibition draws upon the over 100,000 images in the VC photographic archive and from the 100 videos and films produced by VC. This exhibit will open in March 2018 at the George J. Doizaki Gallery at the Japanese American Community and Cultural Center in Little Tokyo and run for two months.
At the same time that we portray past events, we want the exhibition to speak powerfully to today’s audiences. We are living in a time of tremendous political and social upheaval where values such as cultural diversity, respect for civil rights, and the pursuit of equality and justice are very much challenged by conservative politicians.
We can’t make this dream a reality without your help. Will you please donate to help us make "At First Light" a reality?
Thank you in advance for your financial and moral support. By supporting this exhibition, you will enable Visual Communications to show the world how art can truly reveal the beauty, vitality, and importance of Asian Pacific American communities.
