Fine Arts

Fine arts plays a critcal role in story telling. It draws upon the imagination to bring life to the abstract ideas and concepts that photographs simply can not capture.

Throughout human history, themes of culture from all civilizations have been defined by fine or visual arts.

Although, the Hmong community has numerous talented artists, we have never challenged them to a theme quite like “Hmongstory 40”.

Through Hmongstory 40, we will gather some of the most talented visionary artists from our community to serve as mentors to help a committed community of artists to create a collection of fine art that will address the issues and themes of Hmong culture, heritage and identity depicting the last 40 years of history. All pieces will be compiled into an exhibit alongside the photo exhibition.
