As an Asian American creative, I’m excited to meet other Asian creators from both MA:E and the larger community of U of M. As someone constantly surrounded by writing, viewing visual art is always refreshing, relaxing, and sparks inspiration for my own craft. In comparison to writing, fine art is sometimes easier to consume, and quicker to get an immediate response to. My favorite thing about visual art is that two people can look at a piece together, simultaneously. Art is really cool because when it’s hung up somewhere, it defines that space. I really look forward to entering a space of culture and art that lifts and honors AAPI voices. And getting to enjoy each piece with the company of a friend.
