Godzilla was founded in 1990 to stimulate dialogue in Asian American visual art across generations and disciplines for New York-based pan-Asian and Pacific Islander American artists and art professionals. Godzilla sponsored public programs such as exhibitions, lectures, and symposia to establish a forum that would foster networking and mutual support among the community. Godzilla served as a platform for arts advocacy and worked with community groups to stop anti-Asian violence until its dissolution in 2001. The collection contains newsletters, flyers, minutes, and organizational materials that document this key Asian American arts organization.
