HYPERALLERGIC -- Kwon got the idea for the Asian American Arts Initiative after coming to teach art at Stanford in 2016 and creating a class she had always wanted to take but had never found in graduate school: one on Asian American art. She says Stanford offered great resources to create the class, including helping to realize the first published book on Asian American artists before 1970, “Asian American Art: A History, 1850 – 1970,” edited by Stanford Professor Gordon Chang, San Francisco State University Professor Mark Dean Johnson and Paul Karlstrom.
