Roxanne & OPAM

Old Town Chinatown Neighborhood Artists

Erickson Gallery

On view: November 9 – Dec 31, 2023


The opening exhibit, Old Town Chinatown Neighborhood Artists, is a celebration of the art made by those who have called Old Town Chinatown home. It features a diverse range of artists and their work, all inspired by the rich history and culture of our neighborhood. It shines a light on the vibrant art scene in Old Town Chinatown and amplifies the story of those making a difference in our community.


Roxanne is a multi-disciplinary artist who creates art that is mood-lifting and explores themes of connection, empathy, and understanding. She uses technology, fine art, and functional design techniques to create her projects. Roxanne’s creative process involves spending time in her community, listening to problems and stories, and working collaboratively with others to create something greater than what could be achieved alone.


She is the project lead behind The Open-air People’s Art Museum (OPAM), a collective of passionate people and various organizations within Old Town Chinatown dedicated to fostering community connections through art.
