AAPI Art Contest
Celebrating our Asian American/Asian Dispora Employees One Art Piece at a Time.
As we continue to live through this pandemic, and we approach the one-year anniversary of President Biden’s signing into law the COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act, we invite our Asian-American/Asian diaspora community at UK to share with us their experiences or stories in artistic form.
We are hoping to collect and exhibit visual or literary works from an Art of Covid contest that reflect on the individual and collective experiences of our faculty and staff over the past two years.
