HYPERALLERGIC -- Mark Dean Johnson, an Art professor at San Francisco State University and an editor of “Asian American Art: A History, 1850 – 1970,” feels that Liu’s contribution to the Bay Area art scene is inestimable.

“Her high spirits, international sophistication and brilliant wit made every interaction a joy. Her courageously powerful and ambitious work, with its foundation in human rights and compassion for laborers, brought new relevance to social realism.”
