About the Artist

Thuy-Van Vu (Seattle) received 2007 GAP Award funding to finance a trip to Danang, Vietnam to photograph the Shantytown near the waste dump in the Lien Chieu district and then make paintings based on those photographs to be displayed alongside paintings based upon similar American sites. Thuy-Van plans to examine the idea of home and the relationship between Shantytowns and the cities they neighbor.
