Society for Asian Art Mourns Passing of Artist Hung Liu
August 23, 2021

The Society for Asian Art mourns the sudden passing of outstanding Bay Area artist Hung Liu. Her work speaks powerfully to audiences worldwide, and has been particularly admired by our members. Many SAA members were honored to know Hung Liu and valued her as a friend. The SAA extends its deepest condolences to her family.

Hung Liu was scheduled to speak on October 22, 2021, as part of this fall's Arts of Asia lecture series. We will announce a replacement speaker at a later date.
