Welcome the Year of the Rat with dancing, art-making and storytelling at our annual Lunar New Year Celebration.

This year’s celebration features a student performance of classical Chinese music and readings from Amy Ma about the zodiac calendar and Year of the Rat 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.
