On Thursday, May 2nd, Kristina Sison debuted her first ever collection of skateboard art at the Portland-based ad agency Wieden+Kennedy. This showcase was a part of Wieden+Kennedy’s Shared Spaces, an immersive Asian household experience.

The pieces on display were inspired by her Filipino-American upbringing. Filipino American identity has always had an impact on Sison’s work. She loved the patterns and intricacies of Asian art growing up.

“In every Asian household there are wood carvings, mixed media, red and gold everywhere and I just loved all those pieces you’d see in a very stereotypical Asian home,” said Sison in an interview with AsAmNews.

National Museum of Asian Art Presents “Shifting Boundaries: Perspectives on American Landscapes”

The Smithsonian’s National Museum of Asian Art has announced “Shifting Boundaries: Perspectives on American Landscapes,” an exhibition featuring works by American painters such as William Metcalf, Dwight Tryon, Winslow Homer and Abbott Thayer who created profoundly beautiful views of the New England landscapes where they lived and worked. “Shifting Boundaries” looks at these works from a variety of viewpoints to explore what these paintings can tell the viewer about changes to the region. The landscapes become invitations to explore a century of human impact on land and water, the erasure of Indigenous histories and the environmental changes that are altering the New England today. “Shifting Boundaries” will open at the museum July 13 and remain on view until July 26, 2026.

The exhibition pilots a new mode of collaborative curatorial practice. The museum partnered with a group of experts in the field of environment and landscape to develop the themes for the exhibition, select works of art and write object labels. Lauren Brandes (Smithsonian Gardens), Dennis Chestnut (Ward 7 Resilience Hub Community Coalition), Jerome Foster II (Waic Up), Elizabeth James-Perry (Aquinnah Wampanoag artist and marine scientist), Lorette Picciano (Rural Coalition), Stephanie Toothman (National Park Service) and Melinda Whicher (Smithsonian Gardens) worked with the National Museum of Asian Art’s Lunder Curator of American Art Diana Greenwold, curatorial assistant Mary Mulcahy and interpretation specialists Liz Gardner and Amy Freesun. The group’s perspectives, drawn from their individual areas of professional expertise and their own personal experiences, allow people to see new details in these works of art and to document profound shifts in attitudes and practices about the environment over the past century.
