Tyrus Wong’s detention as a new immigrant

As a young boy, Tyrus Wong came to the United States with his father, but as part of a grueling immigration process, was detained for a month before being allowed into the country.


Additional support for Tyrus is provided in part by The Louie Family Foundation, The Walt Disney Company Foundation, Buck Gee & Mary Hackenbracht, the National Endowment for the Arts, County of Los Angeles Board of Supervisors, Bill Yee, David Ahmanson, East West Bank, and Women in Film.
