Leland Wong is transforming the CHSA Yick Gallery into a working artist’s studio. The prolific artist is a CHSA artist-in-residence for 2013–2014. His works-in-progress includes photography, painting, t-shirt silkscreening, dumpling making–whatever is on his creative radar at the moment. Leland is currently working on a large-scale mural in the Yick Gallery depicting Chinese railroad workers.
Wong is a San Francisco Chinatown native and still lives a few blocks away decades later. His artistic focus is on his community —the streets, cafes, and people that have shaped his life and artwork.
When Leland is at the museum, feel free to engage him in discussion about his work—past, present or future. Watch for announcements about programs at CHSA involving live creative sessions with Leland.
