This is for all my fellow Bruce fans in Seattle... The Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience presents Do You Know Bruce? -- a new exhibit on the life and legacy of international martial arts icon Bruce Lee. Sure, you've seen his movies, and you know he had the moves, but there's so much more to his story, which has a unique local connection to the city of Seattle.
The exhibit officially opens on October 4, with some awesome events to kick off the festivities. Here's a short promo video for Do You Know Bruce?:
Discover the Bruce Lee you never knew. Here are some more details about the opening day events:

I'll be there! I'm super-excited about this exhibit, not only as a Bruce fan, but as a contributor. I had the honor of writing the text for the exhibit, so I'm really looking forward to seeing how it all comes together. For further information about the Bruce Lee Exhibit, visit The Wing's website.
