The poster features drawings of three bamboo shoots placed within a red rectangular background that is bordered with black. To the left is a black/white photograph of a man and a young girl standing under a Jackson Street sign. The text states, "A lone bamboo doesn't come from Jackson St., net wt. 14 oz. (397 grams), history, poetry, shortstory, from George Leong, Book Party, Wed June 29 7:30, Jackson Street Gallery, 565 Jackson Street S.F., The Book: This book presents a deep, analytical description of Chinese-American reality...The author does not restrict himself to a personal confession of his own experience, but he generalizes. He does this without sacrificing the poignant, lyrical beauty in these pages. The book is a synthesis of various media: some narrative prose, poems, and a remarkable short story, better described by the author as "a tale". From the ground of the very (?) cultural and physical oppression which the people in this book have to suffer and are now experiencing, a very powerful expression of love emerges. The strength of this love as it grows within the consciousness of the poet makes this book an especially (?) poetic experience. The Author: George Leong is a poet, a musician, and a the organizer of the Writer's Workshop at the Kearny Street Workshop which constitutes an Asian American Art Collective in Chinatown, San Francisco. Cover design, Nancy Hom, Photo: Christ Huie." There is English and Chinese text written in black and white.

Chinatown Livestock Series: The Beautiful and the Ugly

General Physical Description note: 26 x 20 in, 13 x 19.5 in.
creator: Loo, Jack

Comments/Descriptions

This series contains two images:
The poster features a manipulated photographic image of a group of Chinese men standing behind seated Chinese women at a table. Three of the seated women in the middle are wearing dresses that have been shaded yellow. The background is also shaded yellow. The text at bottom of image reads, "Rich Chinatown businessmen and the 'so-called' Oriental Beauties." Below there is additional text that says, "Some years ago, a young girl who was a friend of my wife wanted to join the beauty contest. Aside from a passable appearance, I can say that she was a truly unintelligent person. But the Chamber promoted her as "talented and very capable." When I read the biography the newspapers had put out about her, I couldn't believe my eyes. I remarked to my wife: 'Surely she is not a friend of yours,' and we both had a good laugh." The text appears in black. The image and text are contained within a double-line border.
The poster features a woman winning a beauty contest (black and white photograph with a manipulated yellow sash) placed next to a larger photograph of various women wearing bathing suits and standing in a row, as if they are competing in a beauty contest. There is a passage of text that states, "The event began with the introduction of each contestant by having each critter walk around the stage exhibiting its tantalizing flanks at various angles. Then each heifer was led to the forefront of the stage by the two auctioneers who, through questioning the animal first in English and then Chinese, tried to make it yield some signs of animalistic intelligence. But the highlight took place during the bathing suit exhibition. At this time, not only were the most delicious cuts such as the hams and sirloins in full display, but such cow's vital statistics such as its weight, height, and breeding history were also presented to the audience by the auctioneers. There seemed, however, to be two minor discrepancies in the whole show. One is that the resources spent to put on this display will not in any way benefit the average family in Chinatown. It definitely will not put more meat on our dinner tables. And two, with the drastic problems of poor education, inadequate housing, and bad health care facing the Chinatown community, how will we possibly find time to clean up the cow dung left by such Beauty Pageants?" The text (in larger type) at bottom of the image reads, "Chinatown Livestock Show!!"
