February 2014 at Charles B. Wang Center
A Letter from the Director
Start the Lunar New Year, the Year of the Horse, off right with a trip to the Charles B. Wang Center. This season we have many exciting new programs to offer, Our original exhibitions, Seas of Blue: Asian Indigo Dye and Boundless Fantasy: Multimedia Art from East Asia, feature a stunning variety of artworks, both profoundly traditional and strikingly contemporary. We also welcome the acclaimed exhibition Marvels & Monsters: Unmasking Asian Images in U.S. Comics, 1942-1986, curated by Jeff Yang and the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at New York University, which explores the legacy of pop culture representations of Asians and Asian Americans. We will celebrate our Spring kickoff with the opening for all three of the above described exhibitions on March 12 at 5 PM. You are very welcome to join us.
In our Wang Center Theater catch the outstanding dance performance of America's Got Talent winner Kenichi Ebina on March 27 as well as the superlative rhythms of the Bang on a Can All Stars on April 18.
On Fridays this spring starting March 14 delve into Asian hands-on craft workshops and on Saturdays starting February 22 experience Asia's rich tea culture in tea ceremonies led by Asian tea masters.
And if learning something interesting about Asia is on your list of New Year's resolutions, be sure not to miss the Wang Center corner exhibit entitled Explore History: Objects from Asia.
We recommend early registration for all programs.
We hope to see you at the Charles B. Wang Center's galleries, lecture halls, chapel and theater, and we wish all of you a happy and healthy 2014.
