Enjoy Artist Yowshien Kuo’s Virtual Show: The Great Fear of the Period from Sept. 21 – 30 at lccc.wy.edu/virtualart.
St. Louis-based multimedia artist Yowshien Kuo uses art to explore identity and culture against expectations of what it means to be American. Kuo’s mission is to empower marginalized communities and highlight the troubles they face in their day-to-day lives through the visual language of Americana and the use of allegory. Kuo’s main protagonist, a cowboy persona, is a symbolic representation the artist created to embody his struggle to fit within American culture.
