Sang Tao: Beyond Creation

An exhibition of contemporary art by Vietnamese Americans who live and work in Orange County will take place February 5-April 30 at the Old Court- house Museum in Santa Ana. The exhibit consists of 24 works of art by 11 artists, and includes lacquer, oil and watercolor paintings, sculpture and mixed media. The exhibit is curated by artists Dong Nguyen and Ann Phong, whose works are represented in the show, along with artists Nguyen Khai, Nguyen Thi Hop, Cao Ba Minh, Be Ky, Ho Thanh Duc, Duong Van Hung, Luong Van Ty, Na Khanh Truong and Ho Anh.

Accompanying the art exhibition is an archival display, "Documenting the Southeast Asian Refugee Experience, " on loan from the Southeast Asian Archive.
