The California Museum, in partnership with the Bulosan Center for Filipino Studies at UC Davis, announced an all-new exhibit exploring the critical role Filipino Americans have played in our state’s history, California is in the Heart.

Despite being among the largest Asian American groups, Filipino Americans' history is largely unfamiliar to the wider
public. This exhibit helps change that as it highlights their influence in the Golden State from their first landing at Morro
Bay in 1587, through the labor and civil rights movements of the 1960s, to current leadership in local and statewide office.

Never-before-exhibited family photos tie into a map depicting Filipino towns across the state, while artists provide unique perspective as their work supplements a historic timeline. Additional sections celebrate the lifesaving work of Filipino nurses during the pandemic, highlight women's role in the Fil-Am community, and address efforts to combat AAPI hate.

Exhibit support and contributions were provided by the Filipino American National Historical Society Museum (FANHS), Stockton, Calif. and the California Nurses Association.
