Postcards from Salinas


You’re invited to a special exhibition we are hosting with our community partner, ACE (Asian Cultural Experience)!

It will feature “Narciso Bulosan Caliva’s Postcards from Salinas,” an exhibit of postcard photography shot at the Caliva Studio in Salinas Chinatown during the 1930s-40s. Curated by historian Alex Fabros, the exhibit will open on Oct. 1, in the Art & Culture Gallery in the John Steinbeck exhibit hall.

The opening reception will take place at 5:30, Oct. 2, in the National Steinbeck Center Museum Store.

Not all of the people in the photos are identified. For the historical record, we invite the public to help identify some of the subjects in the images.
