Celebrating In Our Ancestors’ Footsteps

Waiting Room

February 15, 2024 from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM

Join Metro Art on February 15, 2024 for a celebration of the exhibition, Where You Stand: Chinatown 1880 to 1939. Kicking off with a dynamic performance of a traditional lion dance by local students of the East Wind Foundation, the event continues with an exhibition walk-through led by Metro Art. Join exhibition partners, Huntington-USC Institute of California and the West, the Chinese Historical Society of Southern California and several descendants of the families connected to the exhibition to hear personal stories and insights.

East Wind Foundation is based in the heart of the Los Angeles Chinatown community. Established in 1972 by Sifu Ron Quan, East Wind’s focus on working towards creating opportunities and making positive impacts on at-risk youths has made them a leader in the global community of not-for-profit institutions. This long-standing tradition has instilled confidence and self-esteem in every person invested with the organization. East Wind has grown since its modest beginnings and seeks to continue its success in three key areas: Performing Arts, Education, and Community.
