Virtual Tour: Meaningful Beauty: Symbolism in Chinese Art


Event Navigation

Sunday, January 22nd

Chinese art is not only beautiful but also is filled with important symbols that would have had and often still have deep meaning for the people of China. In celebration of the Lunar New Year,  we will explore the varied expressions of important symbols in many types of art from China. Additionally, we will contemplate their meaning in different moments of the long history of China and its diverse people.
