Join Educator Taylor and her talented assistant Roux to celebrate Pride Month by learning about AAPI artists who are members of the LGBTQIA community! This week, let’s explore the life of Abstract Expressionist Bernice Bing. Bernice was a Chinese American lesbian artist and community activist who worked in San Francisco. She was inspired by Zen Buddhism and Chinese calligraphy, as well as the Abstract Expressionist movement in the U.S. Let’s get inspired by Bernice’s colorful style of painting to create our own Abstract Expressionist work of art!

Help MOCA celebrate 🌈  PrideMonth by exploring the lives and work of AAPI artists who are members of the LGBTQIA 🏳️‍🌈  community! This week, let’s learn about Martin Wong. Martin Wong was a gay Chinese American artist who moved from San Francisco to New York’s Lower East Side in the late 1970s. His paintings 🎨  often featured scenes from the neighborhood, which wasn’t usually pictured in art around this time. Let’s take a look at Martin Wong’s painting La Vida and then create portraits of what we see outside our own windows!
