Welcome to May as we celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander (#AAPI) Heritage Month! Starting today and throughout the month, we will be introducing AAPI members in the print field.
Mizin Shin is a visual artist, printmaker, educator, and also one of the co-founders of Mirabo Press, a printmaking studio based in Buffalo, NY.
Mirabo Press provides a wide range of printmaking facilities including intaglio, relief, monotype printing, etc. as well as educational and community programming. They welcome students to the studio to learn about this democratic and socially formative medium.
More recently, Shin has been screen-printing #StopAsianHate signs and distributing them to educational institutions and other cultural organizations, including IPCNY! Feel free to stop by and pick one up, and most importantly, join us in continuing to raise awareness of the hate crimes against the AAPI community.
