Wing Luke Museum

Chinese-American politician Wing Luke broke barriers as "the first person of color on the Seattle City Council and the first Asian American elected to public office in the Pacific Northwest." The Wing Luke Museum, named in his honor, also made history as "the only museum dedicated to the Asian Pacific American Experience in the United States." At the link above, readers can learn more about the museum, preview exhibitions, and view digital archives. For example, the Digital Collections section (found under the Programs tab) links out to the Cantonese Opera Collection and Takano Studio Collection. The former contains documents and records such as song scripts and musical programs, while the latter focuses on images. The Programs tab also highlights collaborative efforts between Wing Luke and other institutions, such as Your Story, Our Story, a digital storytelling collection focused on immigration and migration, and the Mix It Up Directory, a compilation of Asian Pacific American artists and art resources. Under Education, instructors will find a variety of curriculum ideas. The Wing Luke Museum is supported by various institutions and foundations, including the National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Park Service.
