It is our dedicated work at the Chinese American Museum of Chicago (CAMOC) to advance the appreciation of Chinese American culture through exhibitions, education, and research and to preserve the past, present, and future of Chinese Americans primarily in the Midwest. We began over 15 years ago, when the Museum opened to the public on May 21, 2005. After a devastating fire in September of 2008, the Museum was closed for renovation and reopened in 2010.
Our vision is to work with organizations, visitors, and community leaders across the country to tell the story of Chinese Americans primarily in the Midwest and to build a community around a continuous dialogue illustrating how Chinese American culture and contributions are an important part of the American fabric.
We have relied on the generous donation of members and donors like you to fund our exhibitions and public programs but have encountered serious setbacks due to COVID-19. We now need your support more than ever. Your generosity will allow us to host exhibitions and public programs to help us inspire the next generation of young people to take on a greater role in their communities to promote education and cultivation of the Chinese American culture. This action helps to define and strengthen our communities.
