Roll in the Year of the Pig with dancing, art-making and storytelling at the Asian Art Museum’s annual Lunar New Year Celebration on February 17 from 10:30am – 4pm. 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.
