Artist Contributor

Huong is an artist, social activist, philanthropist, and Vietnam War refugee. Along with founding The Peace Mural Foundation, she has been creating art to promote peace for over 30 years. Having seen the horrendous effects of war first hand, she has dedicated her life to promoting peace and sovereignty for all of humanity. Art helped her to confront the tragedy, the loss of her family, and the effort of adapting herself to a new land. Painting was a cathartic exercise that helped her to organize her memories, to trust again, and to experience a resurgence of hope.

Motivated by her own life history, Huong has committed herself to communicate peace through art. Being an immigrant herself, she knows what it means to leave your homeland in search of opportunity and peace. Huong has participated in more than 100 expositions in the United States and Canada, and has been featured in national news outlets like The Huffington Post, The New York Times, and The Washington Post. She has been hosted by The Department of Homeland Security, National Council of La Raza, and has been sponsored by The American Library Association.
