ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Artists will explore the concept of youth and how one’s youth should not be determined by one’s age, but rather one’s capacity to dream and stay imaginative, no matter one’s age. The theme will showcase artists who are able to demonstrate a connection to the dreams of their youth and how it has affected their current perspective. In life, youth seems to be lost as your experiences develop and as you move through adulthood. The art that will be showcased in this show will serve as an inspiration to play, have fun and remind us of what youth means. For many Asian American women, youth seems to become a dream, or something lost along the way due to all the pressures of being an Asian Woman today. The artwork will hopefully serve as a reminder to stay positive in one’s capacity to imagine and dream which is the driving force to happiness and success in all aspects of your life.
