Think Chinatown 2017: 千絲萬縷 Tied Together by A Thousand Threads
Think Chinatown 2017: 千絲萬縷 Tied Together by A Thousand Threads

This project was organized by youth in Boston’s Chinatown, and the mural was conceptualized by Chinatown resident Yvonne Ng. My role as the community artist was to translate Ng’s ideas into a painted mural. Chinatown youth, as well as community members, helped paint the mural.
