Welcome to the DePaul University Asian American Art Oral History Project.

Founded in 2009, this ongoing student conducted project led by Laura Kina, Professor Art, Media, & Design, is dedicated to collecting oral histories of Asian/Asian American artists and key organizers and participants of Asian/Asian American arts and cultural organizations. While the scope of the project encompasses diasporic and US born Asians across the United States, the primary focus of the archive is to document the history of Midwestern Asian American artists and arts organizations.

If you would like to share your story, contact Laura Kina at lkinaaro@depaul.edu
