Long Beach’s Pacific Island Ethnic Art Museum (PIEAM) is the only museum in the contiguous United States with a mission is to amplify the collective wisdom of the people of Oceania. The current “Carrying the Pacific” exhibit is the first of its kind, centering on Pacific Islanders’ birthing traditions, experiences and voices.
Visitors have the opportunity to view works by Pacific Islander contemporary artists Roldy Aguero, Micki Davis, Dan Taulapapa McMullin, Jason (JP) Periera, Samantha Winter Tagaloa, Lilo Tauvae and Roquin-Jon Quichocho Siongco. Ethnographic art from PIEAM’s permanent collection is interwoven to highlight connections with Pacific Islanders’ ancestors.
