Zodiac on Parade is a public art project started in 2021 to celebrate the Year of the Ox. What began as an alternative celebration has become a part of our annual Chinese New Year Festival & Parade celebration in San Francisco. Highlighting local artists, statues were displayed all over the city to enable the public to celebrate the new year safely.
