明州華人百年歷史圖片展–開幕

主題:100 Years of Chinese American History in MN from 1911 – 2011 – Story from Within

開幕儀式 May 04, 2011, 5 – 7 p.m.

地點: Landmark Center, Saint Paul, MN

展覽期:05/01/2011, 12:00 p.m. to 06/13/2011, 5:00 p.m.
(06/16 – 07/16 轉往 Burnsville Performing Arts Center 展覽)

主辦單位:
Minnesota Chinese Cultural Services Center (MCCSC),
Chinese American Academic and Professional Association in Minnesota (CAAPAM),
Asian Media Access (AMA),
Minnesota Veterans Association in Minnesota (MCVA),
and several other Chinese community organizations.

簡介:
The exhibition highlights the Chinese American Minnesotans, their contributions and struggles, with a special emphasis on the Oral and Photo History throughout MN.  May 4th event will include Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the Photo Exhibition, Introduction of the 15 Oral History Interviewees, and Exhibition Tour.

The reason of choosing the 100 years – from 1911 – 2011 is inspired by the MN Historical Society book – 「Chinese in Minnesota」 description – “By 1910 the Chinese population had grown to nearly 400. This included more than 100 Chinese men in Iron Range towns, where they operated small businesses, including laundries, to meet the demands of the men who worked in lumber camps and mines. Family life developed slowly in Minnesota’s early Chinese community and elsewhere in the United States, due to the restrictions of the immigration law, Chinese tradition, and the high cost of trans-Pacific travel. Nevertheless, at least six families were established in Minnesota before 1910.” We see 1911 is a new beginning for Chinese American in MN, with establishing immigration patterns and soon many events followed, such as: establishing cultural and social organizations, businesses, involving in mainland politics, and active education exchange, etc.

The project will capture information about Chinese immigration history in MN, settling experience and their memories in relationships to historical events back in the homeland. The whole project will include:
• 15 Oral History Interviews with Chinese Americans in MN
• Photo and Audio/Video Exhibition, May – June, 2011 (along with Chinese American Artists’ works)
• Educational Package with DVDs, including Photo Exhibition of Chinese American History in MN, 15 Oral History Interviews, 100 Chinese Families Slide Show and the whole year event records.

Special thanks to the MN Historical Society’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund to make this project possible. All our events are free and open to the public, please check on:
