Wing Luke Museum
719 South King Street, Downtown Seattle, Seattle
The COVID-19 global pandemic has not only been a public health crisis, but an economic crisis, and impending mental health crisis as well. The stress and pressure have weighed heavily on our spirits. We crave the role that art plays in our lives as an outlet for processing our emotions, raising our voices, and sharing our personal stories. The work of arts and culture organizations like the Wing Luke Museum, as well as the collectivized work of community -driven artists, add to the strength of our community’s emotional and spiritual resilience. As we struggle with the racism, stigmatization, and economic crisis caused by COVID-19, now, more than ever, our stories and lived experiences as Asian Pacific Americans must be visible, amplified, and not left behind on the road to recovery.
Anti-Asian hate has been rampant since the beginning of the pandemic. Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) voices have been silenced and hurt due to the stigmatization of COVID-19 and Asian Pacific Americans. We hope that with the continuation of our Love Letters campaign, we are able to create a platform for healing and finding solace to empower the AANHPI community to find resilience and healing through art practices.
