The San Lorenzo Valley (SLV) Museum is pleased to present "Chinese Pioneers: Power and Politics in Exclusion Era Photographs" at the Faye G. Belardi Memorial Gallery in Felton, which is open Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays, 1 - 4 pm.
This temporary exhibition explores the social, political, and judicial disenfranchisement of Chinese Californians — as well as moments of Chinese agency and resilience — in the decades before and after the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act. The exhibition is installed with hands-on activities and supplemental material including a Chinese translation, panels on the local story, and books for young visitors.
This free exhibition will be on view from September 17 to November 12 and is not to be missed!
