On Wednesday, the Asian American Art Museum in San Francisco announced that it will be closed Thursday because of a storm that has rippled through Northern California.
The museum announced on social media that it would close to ensure the safety of its visitors and staff.
“We hope everyone is safe from the storms this week!” the museum said in its post.
Visitors have been flocking to the museum to see a new exhibit called “Kongkee: Warring States Cyberpunk.” The exhibit features work from Kongkee, an animation director and visual artist. Kongkee grew up in Hong Kong and is now based out of London.
“Warring States Cyberpunk” examines Chinese poet Qu Yuan’s soul through the lens of the ancient Chu Kingdom and a futuristic version of 21st-century Asia. According to the museum’s website, the exhibit is an “immersive” experience filled with neon lights and different forms of media.
