Explore crossing and immigration at historic Ross Alley!

Join us at the unveiling of “Liminal Space/Crossings”, a community-engaged public art project led by Bay Area artist, Summer Mei Ling Lee. The installation is based on Lee’s year-long community-based research on Chinatown’s history, uncovering stories of local residents in dialogue with her relationship to her Chinese immigrant grandmother. “Liminal Space” highlights immigration as an unfurling of processes that begins with a physical transverse of the Pacific Ocean, but is an event that casts reverberations of change for generations to come.

The unveiling will also feature a participatory project with artist Laura Boles Faw. A performance with Gabriel Case from Creative World Music Ensemble and Erhu player Hexuan Li will be presented.

The project is presented by Chinese Culture Culture of San Francisco in partnership with the Chinatown Community Development Center. Supported by California Arts Council, City and County of San Francisco, the National Endowment for the Arts, San Francisco Arts Commission, Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
