Lunar New Year Reception 2012

Lunar New Year Reception

On February 1, 2012, The Metropolitan Museum of Art marked the start of Lunar New Year, celebrating the Year of the Dragon with a reception hosted by the Multicultural Audience Development Initiative. Guests enjoyed a lion parade, courtesy of the Chinese American Planning Council and student-dancers from P.S. 124 in Chinatown, and had an opportunity to view the exhibition Chinese Art in an Age of Revolution: Fu Baoshi (1904–1965).
