The Bronx Museum hosted a Lunar New Year celebration on Saturday, February 21, in collaboration with the New York Chinese Cultural Center. Kids had fun with crafts, and learned about traditional techniques of paper cutting and calligraphy, before enjoying a performance of costumed folk dances, authentic music, and a Lion Dance.
