APIMEDA (Asian, Pacific Islander, Middle Eastern and Desi American) artists based in Maryland, DC and Virginia creatively share how they face a world constantly in flux. Explore how this community transitions, transforms and transcends in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, toxic environments and relationships, losing loved ones, and more. Through artwork and research from AA&CC’s Greater Baltimore Asian Community History Project, this exhibit honors the exciting transition of the Parlor from a former funeral home to a vibrant arts hub, the Station North neighborhood's transformation from a historic Koreatown to a diverse arts district, and our TRANS and LGBTQ+ neighbors who continue to confront and transcend discrimination.
