Share Your Stories

Are you part of the Asian American community living or working in the Richmond region with a story to tell? We want to hear from you! The Valentine is partnering with the Asian American Society of Central Virginia (AASoCV) and the 1882 Foundation to highlight the stories and experiences of Asian American community members for an exhibition to open at the Valentine in Summer 2025.

Exhibit participants will be photographed with an object they own that tells a personal story about their experience as an Asian American community member living in the Richmond region. The object can be large or small, old or new (a toy, a piece of clothing, a piece of art, etc.) but must be able to be included in a portrait with the participant. Participants will receive a copy of their portrait and an individual or family membership to the Valentine (valued $25-75).
