The Chinatown-International District – Through the Eyes of A Tiger Project culminates with a exhibition of our work in May 2023.


The photo exhibit will open weekends starting May 6, 2023 and run through May 28 at the Nisei Veterans Hall ( 1212 S King St, Seattle, WA 98144 ) and will be free and open to the public.


Exhibit will be on display on Saturdays and Sundays in May 2023, between 11:00am to 3:00pm.*


*The opening day May 6 will be open between 12:00pm to 3:00pm to the public.


The exhibit will be held in the historic Nisei Veterans Hall in Seattle’s Little Saigon neighborhood. Constructed in 1938, the hall has been a community cornerstone for Seattle’s Japanese American community. 


While the lions danced during the Lunar New Year, a group of photographers recorded the festivities and everyday community life for a project they are calling “Chinatown International District: Through the Eyes of a Tiger.

The title refers to 2022 being the Year of the Tiger in Chinese culture.


“Through the Eyes of a Tiger,” is the name of a project created by ten artists, nine of whom are photographers.

Each brings a different perspective, and each is recording the living history of the neighborhood as they see it, with their own individual photographic style and interest. The project comes at a difficult period for the historic Asian neighborhood.
