Weekday Urban Sketchers Celebrate Chinese New Year

This week is the beginning of Chinese New Year and Urban Sketchers Chapters around the globe are celebrating by sketching at the various exhibitions and celebrations in their cities.   We will join the celebration at the China Institute in lower Manhattan.  The current exhibition "Art in a Time Of Chaos" has a timely ring to it.  The exhibit focus is on the 3rd to 6th Centuries in Chinese art. The work produced in this epoch is responsible for "laying the foundation for Chinese artistic standards, genres, subjects and themes that continue to define Chinese art today". Join us as we explore this  little known cultural institution in Manhattan's Financial District.
