Artworks in NYC subways celebrate Asian American culture in America
Artsy, the leading online art marketplace is curating a new project in New York City subways.
It's called "Already Home: AAPI Artists on Belonging" and features work by Asian American and Pacific Islander artists that celebrates the history and experiences of being Asian in America.
News 12 spoke with a New York City artist whose work is featured.
"A really positive thing about being part of this public art billboard campaign is that, I don't know, maybe help young AAPI folks or kids to be able to envision themselves as maybe being artists and being in the art world," said artist Oscar Yi Hou.
"We have an opportunity here to raise awareness and appreciation for Asian and Pacific Islander artists, and to show our support for this community in a way that goes well beyond our typical online reach. I mean there are two million people riding New York City subways every single day," said Dustyn Kim, of Artsy.
The artwork is on display now and runs through June 7.
