Kick off an alternative Chinese New Year celebration with artist Imin Yeh, who’s February project involves museum visitors to produce seemingly “auspicious” cultural objects. Yeh’s “NianHua Workshop” will take place on designated days in February, culminating in a festival sale on February 24. NianHua prints, made by traditional woodblock technique, depict beneficent deities and are produced specifically for the New Year. During the drop-in workshops, visitors will be invited to join an assembly line of production, helping to make affordable, hand-colored woodblock prints of newly-created urban gods.

Join the NianHua Workshop Team!
