Lunar New Year is celebrated by many different Asian communities, especially in the neighborhood of Flushing where the Lewis Latimer House Museum is located. This year, the museum will be hosting a Lunar New Year Tinker Festival, in collaboration with the local artist group Chinese Theater Works, experts on the art of Chinese shadow puppetry and traditional Chinese opera. There will be shadow puppet workshops and brief introduction to Chinese opera! Participants can join in for a hands-on experience with making their own shadow puppets, while watching a performance by the artist group. All materials will be provided by the Lewis Latimer House Museum to the participants. All attendees over 12 are asked to show vaccination proof as mandated by NYC guidelines and all participants keep their masks on when they are indoors at the Museum.
