“I Want the Wide American Earth: An Asian Pacific American Story”

This exhibition features a moving, dramatic, and evocative narrative of Asian Pacific American culture. Created by the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center and the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, the exhibition tells the rich and complex stories of the very first Asian immigrants, including their participation in key moments in American history: Asian immigrants panned in the Gold Rush, hammered ties in the Transcontinental Railroad, fought on both sides in the Civil War, and helped build the nation’s agricultural system. In addition to the exhibit, attendees are eligible for a free e-book, a 14-page illustrated adaption of the exhibition. Produced in collaboration with SI Universe Media, creators of the first-ever Asian Pacific American comics anthology, the e-book tells the Asian Pacific American story in graphic narrative, featuring work by seven Asian Pacific American comic artists.
