Chinese American Museum
The Chinese American Museum is located in downtown Los Angeles and is the first museum in Southern California dedicated to the Chinese American experience and history in this region. CAM's mission is to foster a deeper understanding and appreciation of American's diverse heritage by researching, preserving, and sharing the history, rich cultural legacy, and continuing contributions of Chinese Americans. Through multi-faceted activities including exhibitions, educational programs, and publications, CAM aims to illuminate the challenges and achievements of Chinese Americans, from the earliest pioneers to the newest immigrants.
For our holiday tree, we chose Chinese food as a theme for the ways in which food connects and unifies our families and communities. Tree ornaments include food items that have become "Americanized" and recognizable to the general public. While this holiday season may be virtual, we hope this tree can encourage celebrations with friends and family in fun and unique ways!
All proceeds will benefit the Friends of the Chinese American Museum.
