Faces of Chinatown Gallery Exhibit
The "Faces of Chinatown" exhibit makes its second appearance in Northeast Ohio at Cleveland State University in association with OCA-Asian Pacific American Advocates Greater Cleveland Chapter and the Cleveland Asian Festival for Asian Pacific American Heritage Month in May.
"Faces of Chinatown" is an extensive photography exhibit capturing the evolution of the historic neighborhood, Cleveland’s Chinatown in and around Rockwell Avenue. The exhibit first debuted in the summer of 2012 on the second-floor gallery of Asian Town Center in Cleveland's AsiaTown neighborhood.
The exhibit combined the contributions of several award-winning artists. Photographer Steve Cagan captured current day images, which were combined with historical images provided by local families, as well as selected images from the Cleveland Press Collection at Cleveland State University Library. Emmy-winning video producers Luanne Bole-Becker and Bob Becker collected oral histories and organized the exhibit and graphic artist Katie (Major) Melnick designed the completed panels. Michael Byun, Lisa Wong and George Kwan Jr. served on the Advisory Panel; Faces of Chinatown was a project of Asian Services in Action, Inc. (ASIA), with partial funding provided by Cuyahoga Arts & Culture, St. Clair Superior Development Corporation, and Margaret Wong & Associates.
