A man who dresses up as a Sikh Captain America to fight intolerance will have his cartoons on display at the Wing Luke Museum in Seattle for the next nine months.
Vishavjit Singh of New York visited Seattle on Monday to see the opening of his exhibit, “Cartoons, Turbans, and Confronting Hate.”
“I use cartoons to kind of confuse people, shatter their stereotypes, and make them go, ‘Wait a minute. What’s going on here?’” Singh said. “The Captain America opens some of those doors, gets the conversation going.”
Singh, who was first featured at the Wing Luke 10 years ago as part of a bigger exhibit, hopes his cartoon and performance art leads to more questions and broader understanding.
The cartoonist also does a lot of work in schools to help kids break down racial barriers.
Visit: Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience, 719 South King Street, Seattle, (206) 623-5124, wingluke.org. Exhibit on display through February 24, 2019.
