1900.4807 Article Cassie Chinn, left, and May Ching prepare the "Women and Violence" exhibit, which opens tomorrow at the Wing Luke Asian Art Museum in Seattle. The exhibit, which runs through Sept. 4, focuses on the vulnerability and resilience of Asian-Pacific American women. Women and Violence exhibit part of the New Dialogues Initiative at the Wing Luke Asian Museum SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/visualart/220821_ncenter20.html Exhibit looks at violence against Asian women Wednesday, April 20, 2005 By ATHIMA CHANSANCHAI SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER REPORTER As part of a new exhibition at the Wing Luke Asian Museum, empty jars will line the small gallery. Underneath each jar will be questions, including: "Have you ever known someone who is a victim of domestic violence?" and a pile of rocks. Visitors who answer yes are encouraged to put a rock in the jar. Organizers expect many full jars by the end of the five-month exhibition, "Women and Violence." Focusing on both the vulnerability and resilience of Asian-Pacific American women, it opens with a reception tomorrow and runs through Sept. 4. Videos and slide shows will accompany panels that take visitors through the terrain that leads to women becoming punching bags and commerce as the victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking. Visitors will see how women are enslaved by war and how economic and workplace inequalities swing the pendulum of power toward abusers. Another room holds resources for becoming a survivor. Mannequins in the center of the room show outfits matching the most common exotic sexualized stereotypes that cling to Asian women in the United States: the Dragon Lady/Sexy China Doll, the Geisha, the Mail-Order Bride and the Hula Girl. All the outfits were ordered on eBay, said exhibit planner May Ching. The Mail-Order Bride features a white sundress briefly sold at Wal-Mart with "Return to Sender" and several World War II stamps on it. "You're confronted with the issues and how it manifests in society," said George Quibuyen, one of the exhibition coordinators. "It's not so much about the nature of victimhood. It's not a space to throw it back in their face." In the decade since a pregnant Susana Remerata was gunned down by her abusive husband in the King County courthouse, advocates of Asian immigrant women have come forward as empowered survivors trying to prevent further tragedy. "The community has a role to prevent it. The more education we do, the better. Domestic violence is still a taboo issue in the community, even though we've been doing this for 10 years," said Emma Catague, the program manager in community organizing for the Asian & Pacific Islander Women & Family Safety Center, which is one of the exhibit's two community partners. The other is the Seattle chapter of the Gabriela Network, an organization of U.S.-based Filipinas who focus on organizing, educating, networking and advocating around the trafficking of Filipinas through the "mail-order bride" industry, prostitution and forced labor migration. Catague, a survivor of domestic violence 30 years ago, added, "One of the reasons I want to speak up is to help others get out of their situation." "Violence on women is a serious crime and does not discriminate. This issue cuts across all lines of ethnicity, nationality, language, culture, economics, sexual orientation, physical ability, education level, and religion, and affects women from all walks of life," said Joann Natalia Aquino, Wing Luke's spokeswoman. "We hope that women affected by violence will know that there's a community out there they can turn to for support, assistance, resources and shelter. We want them to know that they are not alone." According to the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 205 people were killed from 1997 to 2001 in the state in domestic violence-related homicides. Current or former boyfriends or husbands did most of the killing of women. Washington police departments responded to 51,550 domestic-violence calls in 2000, including homicides, rapes, assaults, robberies and arsons. "Asian immigrant women suffer at a greater risk," said Lan Phan, executive director of the Safety Center. "Asian culture is so focused on family. There's nobody you can talk to, there are language issues, lower socio-economic status and immigration status." All visitors need to do to understand the spirit of the exhibition is to look up at one of the quotes that will scroll on the gallery's walls. This by poet activist Audre Lorde: "I have come to believe over and over again that what is most important to me must be spoken, made verbal and shared, even at the risk of having it bruised or misunderstood." OPENING AND RECEPTION AT THE WING LUKE At 5:30 p.m. tomorrow, Wing Luke Asian Museum members and the public are invited to an exhibition opening and reception to commemorate the unveiling of the "Women and Violence" exhibit. The event is free. Light refreshments will be served. The Wing Luke Asian Museum is at 407 Seventh Ave. S. in Seattle's International District. To RSVP, call Joann Natalia Aquino, public relations manager, at jaquino@wingluke.org or 206-623- 5124, Ext. 106. The Wing Luke Asian Museum is also asking for old cell phones as part of the HopeLine program, a national program by Verizon Wireless to recycle cell phone. It benefits victims of domestic violence. A cell phone drop-off box will be available at the museum. Donors can also deposit used wireless handsets, which will be refurbished, recycled and/or sold, with all proceeds going to non-profit groups that help victims of domestic violence.

1900.4808 Article Ron Chew and his sons, Cian, 9, left, and Kino, 7, huddle as they hear noises from an old window shutter blowing outside one of the Kong Yick buildings yesterday. The building, constructed in 1910, was once a hotel for single men. The Wing Luke Asian Museum, where Chew works, plans to renovate it and turn it into a community showcase. Old Chinatown attracts new money Developer, museum step in to renovate four historic buildings Tuesday, April 26, 2005 By VANESSA HO SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER REPORTER At Wholesome Vegetasia, a ground-floor restaurant in Seattle's Chinatown, bamboo plants and green tea provide urban serenity. But on the floor right above it, rows of ruined windows scream urban decay. At the Mon Hei Chinese bakery, it's the same thing: The downstairs bustles with customers buying pastries and coconut buns, while the upstairs sags with dark, vacant floors. "You walk up King Street at night and it's dreary. There's no lights above. There's no hustle and bustle," said Bob Santos, a longtime International District activist. Like many historic neighborhoods, Seattle's Chinatown has long suffered from blight and a split personality. Ground-level restaurants and shops attract chowhounds and curio seekers, but the skeletons of long-defunct hotels hover directly overhead. It's a phenomenon that dates back three decades. But for the first time in years, a private developer is planning to invest heavily in the neighborhood, with massive renovations planned for three decrepit buildings. The developer, James Koh, hopes to start construction next month. Also, the Wing Luke Asian Museum is moving into one of the 1910 Kong Yick buildings, with plans to turn the now-semi-vacant space into a sparkling community showcase. The changes are a welcome relief, if not entirely embraced. Many in the International District are adopting a wait-and-see attitude about the plans. "If nothing else, having (buildings) open will make a difference," said Sue Taoka, executive director of the Seattle Chinatown International District Preservation and Development Authority. "We just hope it's the right kind of development making a difference in the neighborhood." Others see the changes as just a start. Chinatown is a nationally registered historic district of just 12 blocks, but five of them are marred with at least one vacant, or semi-vacant, building. "It's been a persistent problem for our neighborhood," said Tom Im, a neighborhood planner with Inter*Im, a community development association in the area. But after awhile, the shuttered buildings -- and the graffiti and drug dealing that bloom around them -- become "ingrained in people's psyches," he said. In 2003, Koh bought three buildings in the heart of Chinatown: # The 1911 Milwaukee Hotel, which is empty upstairs. Koh wants to turn this into 113 market-rate apartment units. # The old Hong Kong restaurant building and Mar Hotel upstairs. Both sections are vacant. Koh wants to make this into commercial space with six top-floor apartments. # The 1910 Alps Hotel, where $300 a month at the dilapidated front desk buys guests cramped quarters with no bathroom. Koh wants to convert this into 117 market-rate units. "I want to see if we can make the place better, I guess," said Koh, who owns other properties around Seattle. Like other hotels in the area, Koh's buildings once housed hundreds of Asian cannery and railroad workers in the early 20th century. But after 20 people died in the downtown Ozark Hotel fire in 1970, the city enacted strict fire codes for single-room occupancy hotels. Many owners couldn't afford the changes, and shuttered their buildings. As the properties decayed, city officials and community developers tried to sway owners to fix them up. But most Chinatown owners have refused. "We cannot afford," said Tony Wong, president of the Hip Sing Association, a social club that owns a four-story building on Fourth Avenue South. The lower floors hum with businesses and clicking mah-jongg tiles, but the upper floors are tattered and dark. It would cost about $2.9 million to make the building livable, he said. Other owners are elderly and unwilling to sell, go into debt or endure reams of paperwork for any of the government-funded loans available to help them. They also can't tear down the buildings, because the historic district that governs the neighborhood won't allow it. Also, because immigrants often pooled money to build or buy buildings in the past, many properties still have multiple owners, making decisions difficult to orchestrate. Curtis Dong, whose 75-year-old father co-owns the defunct 1908 Eclipse Hotel on South Weller Street, has talked to his cousins about reopening the building as a vibrant place to live and work. But his father -- and his father's elderly siblings who also own the building -- aren't interested. It's too much money and work, they say. "We're talking about a really old generation," Dong said. "To them, they think, 'If we rehabilitate it, we'll never see the benefits.' They're from old school." Over the years, the city has dangled carrots for property owners, to no avail. The Department of Housing announced a $10 million low-interest loan program four years ago, aimed mostly at vacant or earthquake-damaged buildings in the International District and Pioneer Square. So far, the only loan made was $7 million to the Cadillac Hotel in Pioneer Square. The city's Office of Economic Development is now setting up a new $10 million loan pool to help projects in Southeast Seattle, the Central Area and the International District -- areas that haven't attracted much development. It's also looking into tax credits for developers in low-income areas. They'll be a tough sell in Chinatown. "What we're finding is the owners in the International District aren't enthusiastic about getting into a highly regulated fund source," said Bill Rumpf, the city's deputy housing director. Housing officials estimate there are between 500 and 600 empty single-room occupancy units in the International District. For them, that's potential for hundreds of units of new housing, which the neighborhood badly needs. "There's some hope," Taoka said. "As the next generation starts to take over the responsibility of these properties, they don't want to have on their conscience that they're slum landlords, or be the reason why the neighborhood is not thriving." She just hopes none of the buildings collapse before then.
