Precious Driftwood
Stories of China, Migration, and New Haven
442 Temple Street
New Haven, CT 06511

Within the houses of six families in the New Haven area, Chinese heirlooms, documents, and objets d’art sit on mantels, adorn walls, and rest in 20th century steamer trunks. They are treasured artifacts of their owners’ stories—tangible heritage that accompanied families as they traversed the Pacific Ocean, culture to culture, generation to generation. Now, whether through affinity for the trans-Pacific spirit of Yale-China’s work or just by chance, these pieces have arrived at the Yale-China Association. We invite you to marvel at them both for what they are and for what they represent.

Precious Driftwood: Stories of China, Migration, and New Haven, Yale-China’s exhibit from November 10, 2014 through July 31, 2015, features the narratives of individuals and their families in the greater New Haven area—some began in China and others began in the United States. This collection of precious objects illuminates the diversity of the Chinese diaspora and the people who worked side-by-side with their overseas peers seeking to create a more multicultural community in a time of world wars and xenophobic demonstrations on both sides of the ocean.

This exhibit is on view from November 10, 2014 through July 31, 2015 at Yale-China Association's Bierwirth Room, 442 Temple Street in New Haven, Connecticut.

To make an appointment to view the exhibit, please email yale-china@yale.edu or call 203-432-0884. more>
