Seattle is home to a special exhibit right now which invites visitors into a thoughtful conversation about race. It’s at the Wing Luke Asian Museum, and it’s called Under My Skin: Artists Explore Race in the 21st Century.
In it, 26 artists share their creative visions of race. They depict the brutal realities of racism in the past and present, the ways race shapes the immigrant experience, and the hope that can be found amidst the complex realities of race in daily life. Under My Skin: Artists Explore Race in the 21st Century is on exhibit at the Wing Luke Asian Museum through mid-November.
