The Wing Luke Asian Museum is an Asian Pacific American (APA) community-based museum with a unique emphasis on the community development process. It is dedicated to engaging the APA communities and the public in exploring issues related to the culture, art and history of Asian Pacific Americans. It is a museum of regional and national significance, and is a Smithsonian Institution affiliate. The Museum is committed to contributing to the economic development of its neighborhood, Seattle’s Chinatown/International District. In 1996 the Museum began its expansion planning, and in 2003 purchased a historic building in the district that was built by Asian American pioneers in the early 1900’s. Over the past five years the Museum raised $23 million from over 1600 individual and institutional donors and executed a unique expansion project that combines historic preservation with creation of contemporary gathering spaces and galleries. In June 2008 the Museum opened its new doors to the public. An ever-changing living museum, WLAM’s current operating budget is $2 million, and projects 50,000 visitors annually. The Museum provides public access to its library, collections and archives comprising over 20,000 items related to the culture, art and history of Asian Pacific Americans.
