Bow-tie & Friends

Monday, April 29, 2019 - 11:00am to 1:00pm

Bow Tie and Friends essentially is a unique art project telling collective stories of undocumented Asian American Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) in an authentic, diverse, and intimate way through drawings, poetry, and interviews in a tarot card format. Much like how conventional tarot cards have a different symbol or meaning on each card, Bo's tarot cards each showcase one facet of the multi-dimensional undocumented experience through storytelling and poetry from directly impacted AAPIs. This project was co-reated by Bo Thai and Madeleine Villanueva, and made possible thanks to Judy Wu, UCI spirit, and friends.
