About This Guide

This guide focuses on organizing lists and resources on selected professional Asian American artists, architects, and designers who have done impactful work.

Notably, as an identity marker "Asian American" encompasses significantly more than what's reflected on this living document, so there are many ways that this can grow. For the purposes of this guide, the Pew Research Center's publications and fact sheets on "Asian Americans" as a constructed racial and ethnic category were used as points of reference.

Guide created and augmented by a graduate assistant, Tacia J. Díaz Fonseca, at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign as part of the #FromMargintoCenter initiative at the Ricker Library of Architecture and Art. Edited for use by Indiana University-Bloomington by graduate assistant, Loesje Krabbe.
