Honoring heritage. Embracing identity. Celebrating a tapestry of traditions. For Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Month, we’re paying homage to AAPI individuals and communities at the cutting edge of creativity, pushing arts and culture forward. We’re excited to embark on a journey to celebrate the diversity and cultures of over seventy communities that comprise AAPI experiences. We invite you to join us in our galleries and for our AAPI public events and programs throughout May. See below for more information about AAPI Month at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
