Boston Rotary helps ring in the Year of the Dog with a visit to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, to celebrate Lunar New Year!

Explore Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese traditions while enjoying a variety of music and dance performances throughout the Museum—including lion dances performed by the Gund Kwok Asian Women Lion and Dragon Dance Troupe and Wah Lum Kung Fu and Tai Chi Academy.

Join us to participate in an interactive demonstration of Saebae, a Korean New Year’s ceremony; go on a tour or talk highlighting works in the Art of Asia galleries, offered in English, American Sign Language, and Mandarin; watch demonstrations of Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese martial arts; and embark on a scavenger hunt in the galleries or drop in on hands-on family art-making activities to create your own masterpieces to take home. The New Jersey–based Korean Traditional Arts Academy also performs.

This Community Day event is a great way to include friends and family!

Where: Plan on arriving early to allow time to park and walk to the MFA Huntington Avenue Lobby Entrance.

Meeting spot: Lori Karas will stand next to the statue in the center of the MFA Huntington Avenue Lobby Entrance. 

When: At 11:30AM she will rapidly distribute the 15 VIP tickets, which provide convenient, quick entry to this popular family event.
