Enjoy fortune cookies with messages from the exhibiting artists that reveal lessons learned and words of gratitude for Hung Liu. Guests can also adorn the bushes in front of the museum with their own messages of Liu’s mentorship, talent, and generosity.
An exceptionally gifted educator, Hung Liu (1948-2021) was a vibrant and vital part of the artist community in the Bay Area and beyond. Just before her untimely death in 2021, Liu began conversations with MCAM to organize an exhibition showcasing the work of an amazing group of women artists that she taught and mentored during her tenure as a professor in the Mills College Art Department.
Look Up to the Sky, Hung Liu’s Legacy of Mentoring Women Artists is the realization of that idea and features the work of Hung Liu alongside former students Rosana Castrillo Díaz, Nicole Fein, Danielle Lawrence, Monica Lundy, Nancy Mintz, Sandra Ono, Susan Preston, Mel Prest, Rachelle Reichert, Yoshiko Shimano, Gina Tuzzi, Lien Truong, and Bambi Waterman.
