About the Wing Luke Asian Museum:
The Wing Luke Asian Museum is located in the heart of Seattle's historic Chinatown/ International District at 407-7th Avenue South. Founded in 1966, the Museum has a regional and national significance, and celebrates its namesake of the first Asian American elected to public office in the Pacific Northwest, Wing Luke. The Wing Luke Asian Museum- an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, the 1995 recipient of the National Award for Museum Service, and the 2004 recipient of the City of Seattle Distinguished Human Rights Award- is dedicated to engaging the public in exploring issues related to the culture, art and history of Asian Pacific Americans.
A museum like no other- The Wing Luke Asian Museum in Seattle, Washington is the only pan-Asian Pacific American museum in the country. It is nationally recognized for its award-winning exhibitions and community-based model of exhibition and program development. The Museum has embarked upon a remarkable journey to transform a building and a community by raising $23 million to rehabilitate the Kong Yick Building as its new permanent home in Seattle's multicultural Chinatown/ International District.

"Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it,
live along some distant day into the answers." -Rilke
