For this year’s National Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, join Queens Memory and the Forest Hills Asian Association (FHAA) for an event to explore the history of the Asian-American community in Queens. Artist EunWoo Nam (a/k/a UNO) will lead participants through an interactive drawing activity inspired by the personal migration stories shared by members of the community. This program celebrates the immigrant experience and builds empathy through storytelling and creative expression. This event was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services grant .
EunWoo Nam (aka UNO) is a NY-based artist with a MFA in Social Practice Queens – Master of Fine Arts from Queens College. His interest in cultural and social studies brought him to the U.S. from his home country, South Korea. His works have been shown in various places such as Hunter College, Queens Museum, Queens Library, and more. His artistic practice includes performance, video, photography, painting, msuic, and sound production. Now he is running his social engagement project called Collective Memory Lane with various communities in NYC and the project would be exhibited soon in 2018. http://www.socialpracticequeens.org/
