January 2015 at Charles B. Wang Center
A Letter from the Director
Welcome to The Charles B. Wang Center, one of Long Island’s preeminent cultural institutions. Our center offers a rich array of programs so that you may experience and explore the vast art and culture of Asia.
This spring, we will be offering cultural programming from all across Asia. Come and enjoy five upcoming exhibitions; Love and Blessings: The Art of Baby Carriers, A is for Arab: Archiving Stereotypes in U.S. Popular Culture, and Pearl of the Snowlands: Tibetan Buddhist Printing from the Derge Parkhang. We will also be featuring riveting fine art paintings with The Everyday Joys of Japan and a site-specific installation by MFA student, Logan Marks.
Our galleries are just the beginning of this season’s offerings. We are presenting a variety of performances, including Sufi Songs of Love and a traditional Japanese Noh play, Virgin Mary of Nagasaki; lectures on Asian textiles, gardening and the history of Japanese noodles; and screenings of films like Off the Menu and Meet the Patels. We’ll also be cooking up regional delicacies in our hands-on culinary workshops Indian Tea Time and Japanese Noodle Making.
I hope you'll be inspired to visit our galleries, come to our programs and learn more about us at our newly redesigned website and YouTube channel.
Until we meet, I would also like to thank you for the support and enthusiasm you show for The Charles B. Wang Center. Your curiosity and passion make all that we do possible.
Associate Director of Cultural Programs
