Community Advisory Committee for Zhi LIN: In Search of the Lost History of Chinese Migrants and the Transcontinental Railroad

Tacoma Art Museum convened an advisory committee to help the museum consider how to best engage the community and champion key messages in the exhibition through programming, partnerships, and interpretation. With a civic-minded approach, the museum also collaborated with the committee to identify how our work around this exhibition could support existing efforts in the community related to the history and legacy of the railroads.

We are thankful for the thoughtful and dedicated service of the 14 individuals listed below for their time and insights. All of the programs and partnerships created for this exhibition are a direct result of the ideas generated by the committee. Visitors can look forward to engaging talks, community discussions, and more – please see our event calendar for information about upcoming programs.
