2017 National Art Competition Winners: Our Community, Our Future

Our Community, Our Future


Anne Liu, Upper Division Grand Prize Winner.  Together.

Our latest community gallery features the fourteen winners from the 2017 National Art Competition sponsored by the Chinese American Museum and the Chinese American Citizens Alliance. ¬†Titled “Our Communities, Our Future,” we challenged students from grades K-12 to define and show us their visions of community.

The Chinese and Chinese American Communities in the United States are always changing.
Their lives are filled with different journeys and hopes and dreams.
What does community mean to you, and what are your hopes for the future of your community?

With over a hundred submissions from all over the country, students explored the theme of community through a variety of mediums and approaches, addressing topics like inclusion, multiculturalism, service, unity, cultural heritage, the environment, cultural identity, community space, and their hopes for the future.
