Welcome the Year of the Dog. 
Join us February 19th through 23rd in welcoming the Year of the Dog as part of our Lunar New Year Celebration. Throughout the week, we will share stories about how communities in Boston celebrate the New Year through dance, games, and art with a focus on Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese traditions. We are hosting a variety of performances during the week including Gund Kwok Asian Women’s Lion and Dragon Dance Troupe, dancers from Wang YMCA, Boston Traditional Korean Dance Group, and the Worcester Youth Nian Dancers (WYND). Visitors can also participate in artist workshops including Korean paper art with Mija Yun, a collaborative art project with artist Ngoc-Tran Vu, and a special story time with author Long Zhen Han. Please check our online calendar for a schedule of performances and workshops.
