Bobby Lee Next to George Washington?: Asian American Artists at the Smithsonian in DC
Loving this feature story on Asian American artists being featured in the Smithsonian! Crazy! I mean they have displayed portrait art of comedian Bobby Lee next to whatever old white guy’s marble-carved bust all in the same building! That’s blowing my little Asian American mind.
This painting (featured above) shows what it would look like if it was all Asian Americans as Washington crossing the Delaware and winning the Revolutionary War to found the nation. Ha!
Too bad I’m not in DC. Would definitely check this out.
