2017 Annual Moon Viewing Festival

On Thursday, October 5, the BMA’s Asian Art Society gathered with friends, old and new, to celebrate the mid-autumn harvest moon. With traditional music organized by Athena Chang, guests were entertained with performances by flautist Dr. Yiu-Fai Chen, Longquan Li playing the Erhu, Lele Zhang on the Zither, and Grace Tang playing the Pipa. With the help of Teen BMA students, the BMA Education Department created art activities for guests of all ages including printmaking, paper lantern decorating, and haiku writing. Although the night ended without catching a glimpse of the slow rising moon, guests were treated to a moon projection and the sweet taste of mooncakes.
