Seattle-Tacoma International Airport will house a new Asian Hall of Fame exhibit starting May 2, 2017.
The exhibit, by the Robert Chinn foundation, will include artwork, memorabilia, and information, honoring the 22 current honorees.
Millions of travelers who visit the airport will get to witness this unique educational experience and may also find it a nice way to relax while waiting for flights.
The Asian Hall of Fame, established in 2004, nationally recognizes the achievements of Asian Pacific Americans. Additionally, the annual tribute event aims to inspire the next generation and to foster community.
The first round of inductees in 2004 included Gary Locke, former Washington State Governor and Ambassador to China. The 2016 honorees include Connie Chung, Bruce Lee, Major General Anthony Taguba, and Kristi Yamaguchi.
The exhibit, which will be located at Sea-Tac’s South Satellite (S Gates), will kick off with an announcement reception on May 1.
