VAALA presents a visual art exhibit entitled transformART. The exhibit aims to show how the creative process can provide alternative ways of looking at concepts such as environmental stewardship / degradation, beauty / trash, consumerism and the “disposable” culture. Twelve diverse Asian American artists will exhibit an intriguing array of works created from found, recycled, or repurposed materials. The artists include: Ann Phong, Aragna Ker, Hung Viet Nguyen, Huynh Thuy Chau, Nguyen Khai, Nguyen Ly, Nuttaphol Ma, Olga Lah, Sayon Syprasoeuth, Trinh Ponce, Tuan Phan, and Viet Le. VAALA strongly believes that transformed art has the potential to transform entrenched viewpoints and habits. The goals of the exhibit and its related events are to engage an ethnically and socially diverse community and elicit community dialogue about topics that are pertinent to our times. The exhibit promises to be the first of its kind in the Southeast Asian American community.
