It’s amazing how much value a simple conversation can hold. From the first greeting, that little space in time lets you peek into who they are and what makes them… them. In other cases, a conversation can help connect. While progress is being made on shifting negative perspectives around aging, much of the experiences of elders are becoming lost in an ever-progressing Seattle.

Opening that conversation between generations is Hello Auntie, Hello Uncle: Conversations With Our Elders at the Wing Luke Museum. Recentering aging perspectives, it illuminates the lives and contributions of elders in AANHPI communities. It also explores the roles they fill and celebrates their achievements, challenging our ideas around inclusivity and what it means to value and support an older generation.

The exhibit, sponsored by AARP Washington is set to open April 5th and runs until February 23rd of 2025. Witness glimpses into the lives of past figures and their first-hand accounts and perspectives on our community. Come and bridge the gap between generations.

The Wing Luke Museum supports the rich history, dynamic cultures and art of Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders.
