With the month of May proudly celebrated as Asian American and Pacfic Islander Heritage Month and to be part of the collective hope in the air to reverse the ongoing hardship challenges being experienced in Oakland Chinatown, I thought to send a positive message through the front window of our Wa Sung Community Center located at the Oakland Asian Cultural Center. To show an uplifting community message by using 70 colorful Chinese red envelopes as the background and had a calligrapher artistically write a custom scroll depicting in Chinese the word HARMONY along with a message: May Oakland Chinatown be peaceful and harmonious.
Check it out when you're in Oakland Chinatown, and coincidentally there were WS members (Jessica, Lily, Jennifer, Linyi and Cindy ) that saw me unveiling the HARMONY artwork May 28th in our Wa Sung office !!!! ~ Karen Dea
