W/Y Gallery

Henry Wong and You King Yee Memorial Gallery, also known as the W/Y Gallery, is the exhibition space of the Chinese Progressive Association (CPA) inspired by the rich experiences and activism of two of our elderly founding members. It is devoted to partnering with local artists to showcase work that reflects the lived experiences and struggles of our communities, using the gallery as an incubator for discussion and dissemination of the social justice work with which CPA is engaged.

"Every river has its source, and every tree has its roots. The social status of Chinese Americans has risen day by day. These gains were not just given to us by those in power, nor did they fall from the sky, but rather they were the result of good leadership and broad unity."
- You King Yee, Founding Member
