On April 11, PennPraxis and PlanPhilly will present Praxis Dialogues, a conversation about what the notion of “public good” means in terms of public arts and culture. We’re sharing commentaries from the panelists in advance. So far we’ve heard from Ken Lum on public art’s health, and Paul Farber on the obligations and opportunities of public art in Philadelphia. This week Nancy Chen takes us to Asian Arts Initiative’s social practice art rooted in their Chinatown North / Callowhill neighborhood.
Asian Arts Initiative, a community based arts center founded in 1993, has used art as a vehicle to explore the experiences of Asian Americans and the diverse communities of which we are a part.
