Join us for the Opening Reception of two Spring 2023 exhibitions.

Textures of Remembrance: Vietnamese Artists and Writers Reflect on the Vietnamese Diaspora explores stories of personal struggles and memories demonstrating the effects of the Vietnam war on identity, sense of family and community, and representation, featuring works by emerging writers and artists.

Other Worlds: The Art of Storytelling is a student-developed exhibit which explores global storytelling traditions—acting, dance, puppetry, game design, costuming, film, and literature—through material culture, immersing visitors in an adventure following the Hero's Journey.

Free and open to the public, RSVP appreciated.


Textures of Remembrance is a traveling exhibit created in partnership by the Diasporic Vietnamese Artists Network, Exhibit Envoy, and Oakland Asian Cultural Center. This project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities, and California Arts Council, a state agency with a mission to strengthen arts, culture, and creative expression as the tools to cultivate a better California for all.

Textures of Remembrance is supported by SF State's Instructionally Related Activities Fund, University Corporation's Kaufmann Museum Studies Lab Fund, and the School of Art Annual Barry Fund. Public programs are supported by SF State's Division of Equity and Community Inclusion's Educational and Interfaith Programs Fund.
