In this book, I examine Finding Family Stories, across-cultural, cross-institutional collaborative art projectbetween various museums in the Los Angeles area from 1995 to 2003.As ethnic-specific institutions, the Japanese American NationalMuseum and the Korean American Museum collaborated during the firstyear of the project, exhibiting artworks by Korean Americans andJapanese Americans at both venues concurrently. Through thiscultural exchange, Korean Americans and Japanese Americans, as wellas other ethnic communities, could learn the similarities anddifferences between the two cultures within the context of themulticultural society of Los Angeles. This book emphasizes the needfor more multicultural and cross-cultural collaborative projectsamongst community-based cultural institutions in Los Angeles. Iconclude with a proposal for a collaborative project between theKorean American Museum and the California African American Museumas a way towards addressing long-standing tensions between thesetwo groups since the 1992 Los Angeles Riots.
