The museum celebrates, preserves, and promotes Asian and Asian-American art and cultures for local and global audiences. It provides a dynamic forum for exchanging ideas, inviting collaboration, and fueling imagination to deepen understanding and empathy among people of all backgrounds. It is where experiences of Asian and Asian American art and cultures inspire and connect us all.

Projecting Grace is a monthly projection of images on the façade of Grace Cathedral based around a theme. Some of the work and all of the inspiration is courtesy of Amplifier, an organization which gathers artists to create art that amplifies social justice issues. The art projected speaks to our values of inclusion and justice for all, and through this project we hope to connect to others, something art can do so beautifully.
Please note that we reschedule for high humidity due to the sensitivity of the equipment.
