May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month! Virtual experiences are our new reality for now, but that doesn't stop us from celebrating a community that means so much to our city.
The Crow Museum of Asian Art has been a part of the Dallas Arts District since 2010. It celebrates the arts and cultures of Asia through its robust of collection of art from China, Japan, India, Korea and Southeastern Asia, as well as its educational programming.
This month, The Crow Museum is hosting a 31 Days of Asia celebration to honor Asian Pacific Heritage Month. Every day during the month of May, the museum will highlight their various programming on their website and social media channels, playing on the number 31. Programming includes highlighting 31 objects from the museum's permanent collection, 31 mindfulness activities, 31 Asian restaurants to discover in Dallas, and so much more!
Additionally, the museum has other fun activities to participate in virtually. Tune in every Wednesday at 12 p.m., for Crow Unscripted, a Facebook live conversation led by Museum Executive Director Amy Lewis Hofland and an array of special guests that will share contemporary issues for Asian Art and culture. There will also be daily mindful meditations, and Book Club and Movie Club discussions of works created by prominent Asian and Asian-American authors and filmmakers.
