Lunar New Year 初一: Lantern Reveal!

Sunday, January 22, 2023
11 – 1PM

Leap into the prosperous Year of the Rabbit with Think!Chinatown! The first day of the LNY is on Sunday this year, and Chinatown will be at maximum 热闹 “hot & loud.” There will be lion dancing, confetti, and lots of friends and neighbors about. The T!C crew will join in on the festivities on Mott St. with a reveal of our annual Lantern Artist-in-Residency project.

Since 2019, T!C has invited an artist to interpret the iconic red lantern. Red lanterns are particularly special during Lunar New Year as lanterns are lit and raised on the Fifteenth Day of Lunar New Year to mark the end of celebrations.
