Explore the "21@2021" Virtual Exhibit!
Hosted by the Africana, Asian American, Chicano, and Native American Studies Center and in honor of Asian Pacific Heritage Month, "21@2021" is the celebration of the 21st Family Art Exhibit of the Chan Lim Family. The Chan Lim Family of Artists is best known for their Asian-themed art with a particular focus on Chinese brush painting. The family has been actively engaged in the arts for more than half a century to date. The three generations of the Chan Lim Family use a multitude of media, styles, and techniques to incorporate Western into Eastern art. They continue to get involved in the arts by actively developing and promoting Chinese brush painting in the Philippines and abroad.
Over the years, they have continuously pushed the envelope on the type of media used for the Chinese brush. Their art subjects have included flora, fauna, landscape, and even portraits. These themes can be seen in most of the family’s art, as well as their students. This exhibit in particular presents Chinese brush painting on colorful lanterns.
