From the event:
Join us at History Colorado Center as we celebrate the contributions of the API community in Colorado through the sharing of food, festivity, and art! In celebration of the exhibit opening of the interactive art exhibition Colorado’s Asian Food Culture: Rice and Resilience the Cultural Roots Night Market will feature API food, craft, and beverage vendors from across the diverse spectrum of our API community. Enjoy specialty pre-packaged foods, explore crafts and goods from API culture-bearers, and speak with local API organizations about their work in the community.
Throughout the night enjoy the collaborative art exhibition on the third floor that celebrates Colorado’s asian communities’ cultural connections to food through visual art and storytelling. We hope you enjoy these stories of the Asian diaspora in Colorado that tell of our relationships with food, and food legacy that is passed down through generations. We are grateful for the opportunity to uplift the voices of Colorado artists and community members, and to share the experiences of our Asian culture-bearers with the broader community.
