“Celebrate the Lunar New Year and the Year of the Dragon with students of the Chinese American International School (CAIS) presenting Chinese classical music and dances from Chinese ethnic minorities, ending with a playful lion dance arranged by the students. The lion dance is an important part of every New Year celebration and is believed to scare away evil spirits and ensure a bright new beginning. Hunt for dragons in the galleries; listen to dragon stories; make a dragon paper cut, a Year of the Dragon button to wear, or rub on a temporary tattoo featuring the animals from the museum’s collection.”
