I Want the Wide American Earth: An Asian Pacific American Story  
  Museum of Ventura Country, 100 East Main Street, Ventura CA

In this first exhibition of its kind, the Smithsonian celebrates Asian Pacific American history oacross a multitude of diverse cultures and explores how Asian Pacific Americans have shpaed and been shaped by the course of the nation’s history. “I Want the Wide American Earth” 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. Trhough the decades, Asian immigrants struggled against legal exclusion, civil rights violations and unlawful detention, such as the 120,000 Japanese who were interred during World War II. Since the 1960s, vibrant new communities, pan-Asian, Pacific Islander and cross-cultural in make-up, have blossomed.
