"I hope my works will build viewers' awareness of AAPI history and call attention to the racism, both historical and shockingly fresh, against our people." -- Cathy Quon
Cathy Quon, a San Francisco-born Chinese-American mixed-media artist will discuss her collage and assemblage artwork entitled "Silent No More: A history of anti-Asian discrimination," displayed at the Foster City Library from October 4-30. While incorporating some of the traditional methods of collage and assemblage, Cathy's artwork is unique in its sociopolitical bent, focusing on racism against Chinese- and Japanese-Americans. This event is part of our 2021-2022 Equity through Art series in partnership with the County of San Mateo’s Office of Equity and Social Justice.
Cathy Quon is a second-generation Chinese-American and has lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for most of her life. She is a graduate of UC Berkeley and the University of San Francisco. Since retiring from her management consulting career, she spends more time with her mixed media art.
The exhibit will be displayed opposite the front desk at the Foster City Library from Monday, October 4 to Saturday, October 30.
