In 2009, the Center for Hmong arts and Talent hosted its 8th Annual Hmong Arts and Music Festival: NO WORD FOR ART.
Organizers note that "Although there is no Hmong word for art, the reality is that there is a rich tradition of art weaved into the daily lives of the people." This season, 5 artists are being showcased in the Masters Gallery who were the top scoring artists in the visual arts exhibit at the festival and now displayed at the St. Paul Pioneer Press Gallery at 345 Cedar Street, Saint Paul from February 4 to March 31st.
This exhibition is sponsored by Pioneer Press and produced by the Center for Hmong Arts and Talent (CHAT). Artists featured include Dinah Her, Tou Lee, Tou Yia Xiong, Galea Vang and Nikki Yang.
