Roll in the Year of the Pig with dancing, art-making and storytelling
at the Asian Art Museum’s annual Lunar New Year Celebration. This year’s
celebration features readings from author Oliver Chin about the zodiac calendar
and Year of the Pig characteristics — who knows, you may discover
something new about yourself! Then enjoy an interactive lion dance
performance with local favorite LionDanceME. To round out the day’s festivities,
join docent Linda Lei and her calligraphy sisters to have your name written in
Chinese calligraphy and try your hand at art projects from countries across
Asia that celebrate the Lunar New Year, led by our Art Speak teen interns.
