We pause at the crossroads  after more than a year of COVID, climate change, and racial reckoning, we have choices to make about how we move forward. Join us in community to find a path toward healing through interactive art making, storytelling, and musicAll day, you’ll be able to participate in paper lantern, and Japanese boat model demonstrations and activities. At 11 a.m. and again at 2 p.m. a 90-minute performance featuring Asian artists living in diaspora will begin outside with taiko drumming and then wend its way into the museum for more, including spoken word, koto music, and lantern-lighting that will help us illuminate the path toward a more empowered future.
