  • APA Heritage Month Celebration + Sunday Streets

    Workshops & Activities, For Families, and part of Asian Heritage Celebration, Target First Free Sundays

    May 06

    Free admission courtesy of Target

    10:30 AM—4 PM

    Museum-wide

    On Sunday, May 6, the Asian Art Museum joins the City and County of San Francisco in Celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month with a free, museum-wide celebration featuring an artist’s talk, kids’ tours, art-making and more.

    Choreographer and Flyaway Productions founding artistic director Jo Kreiter, and composer-performer Van-Anh Vo, talk about their upcoming project, Tender. An apparatus-based, off-the-ground dance on the facade of the Tenderloin’s Cadillac Hotel, Tender interweaves excerpts of interviews from members of the Tenderloin-based Vietnamese community into the performance. Short samples of the music will be interspersed with the talk.

    The streets will be closed for Sunday Streets, so the celebration can spill out into the Civic Center for nonstop fun.
