Lunar New Year Exhibition: Year of the Tiger Reception
This is the 12th year of this annual invitational exhibition that brings together artists interested in exploring what the Lunar New Year of the Tiger means through their art. Artists are invited to investigate Asian heritage and what the Year of the Tiger means for Asian culture.
