Weekday Sketchers Celebrate an Early Chinese New Year
It is almost Chinese New Year. Join us for an early celebration at the
Museum of Chinese in America.
Taking advantage of free admission on the first Thursdays of the month (which is why we are celebrating early), we will be able to see their newly mounted core exhibit highlighting the migration of a people and culture to America. It is a familiar story told by all who have come to this country but told from a perspective that might not to be known to many of us.
There will be lots to sketch: beautiful artifacts, unique architectural elements that capture the culture as it was transplanted in a new country and the unique renovation of an old tenement into a beautiful and modern museum. We might even find a dragon or two.
