Passionate Engagement: The Art of Nancy Hom


Opening Reception
Friday, March 1 | 7-9 pm

Gallery Hours
Wed – Sat, 12-5 pm (and by appointment)

Asian Pacific Islander Cultural Center presents Passionate Engagement: The Art of Nancy Hom, a retrospective exhibition of visual artist Nancy Hom’s 45-year art career in San Francisco. Co-presented by Luggage Store Gallery, the exhibition runs from March 1-30, 2019 and features Hom™s iconic silkscreens, installations, and an evolving mandala installation that starts with her 2015 œSoul of San Francisco mandala that morphs into a new one by the last week of the show.

Hom will engage community members to make items for the new œEvolving San Francisco mandala, working with students from Buena Vista Horace Mann K-8 School in the Mission and senior residents of TODCO Development Company™s housing in the South of Market. Hom will transform the mandala with fresh, unique additions before each public program, creating a living installation that will change shape throughout the exhibition run.

Exhibition programs throughout the month will include an artist talk, a poetry reading by Hom accompanied by performances, and a panel discussion on our changing city and how it has impacted the lives of its long-time residents.
