During the 2002-2003 academic year, a project entitled AsianAmericanArt, based on a ten year long study of the production of artists of Asian ancestry active in California from the Gold Rush until 1965, was integrated into the academic program at Stanford. Some of the special events which were hosted on campus in association with this project include a small exhibition of historic art work which was mounted as part of the inauguration of Wallenberg Hall, a symposium for Asian American studies students with visiting artists including Filipino activist Carlos Villa and Stanford MFA candidate Binh Danh, a presentation by Karin Higa, Curator of the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles, and two working conferences with national scholars. These projects were presented in association with RICSRE and the Stanford Humanities Lab, and represent the development of the interpretative phase of this innovative rewriting of American art history. The project is co-directed at Stanford by Professor Gordon Chang and RICSRE Visiting Fellow Mark Johnson.
