In June 2020, Christine was invited by “100 Days of Action”, a collective of artists and activists, to submit to the “Art for Essential Workers” initiative to install printed artworks to be displayed in Chinatown storefronts at no cost to the businesses.

Wong Yap found this project was a good opportunity to thread together with “Art, Culture and Belonging.” One of the questions she asked in the “Story of Belonging” survey was what people’s hopes and dreams for Chinatown were. Wong Yap found a selection of answers that are optimistic and addressed discrimination which she used in a design with the quotes hand-lettered both in English and Chinese. Check out “Add Oil, Chinatown!” Artist Talk on Public Art & Neighborhood Recovery to learn more about this work!

100 Days Action is is a Bay Area artist collective that produces creative resistance projects to build community at the intersection of art, activism, and social engagement.
