As unfamiliar as our experiences with COVID-19 may feel, many of the challenges we are facing are not as novel as they seem. Whether living through pandemics, wars, or climate crisis, the individuals who make up the SJSU community have responded with empathy, creativity, and resilience, sometimes in partnership with and sometimes as a challenge to university, city, and world leaders. "Survival Mode" explores the history of San José State University responding to crises with worldwide impact. Photographs, news clippings, yearbooks, and journals from the SJSU Archives, including contributions to the Spartans Speak on COVID-19 project, will provide one lens for understanding our present moment.
Hosted by the Africana, Asian American, Chicano, and Native American Studies Center and in honor of Asian Pacific Heritage Month, "21@2021" is the celebration of the 21st Family Art Exhibit of the Chan Lim Family. The Chan Lim Family of Artists is best known for their Asian-themed art with a particular focus on Chinese brush painting. The family has been actively engaged in the arts for more than half a century to date. The three generations of the Chan Lim Family use a multitude of media, styles, and techniques to incorporate Western into Eastern art. They continue to get involved in the arts by actively developing and promoting Chinese brush painting in the Philippines and abroad. This exhibit in particular presents Chinese brush painting on colorful lanterns.
