    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.
