Established in 1974, the pivotal Asian American Arts Centre (AAAC) is one of the earliest Asian American arts and community organizations in the United States. Executive Director Bob Lee co-founded AAAC with choreographer Eleanor Yung to promote Asian American art and support Asian American artists and their work.
