Although seen primarily as a Chinese celebration by many Americans, Lunar New Year is a holiday reveled by diverse populations across the entire Asian continent and Diaspora communities around the world. February 2015 marks the Year of the Sheep, also known as the year or the ram or the goat in some traditions. To commemorate the occasion, Asia Society Texas Center hosts a Lunar New Year-themed art workshop with local artist Hanh Tran, who is of Chinese and Vietnamese descent.
Asia Society staff will also help you learn about zodiacs and explore the meanings behind common Lunar New Year customs.
