Culture on Zoom

In February 2022, the Portland Chinatown Museum and the Lan Su Chinese Garden helped bring in the Year of the Tiger with Culture on Zoom, a free public Zoom series. This special Lunar New Year programming featured an artist talk with Chinese American photographer Dean Wong, and his work capturing the vibrant legacies of West Coast Chinatowns, followed by a detailed, informative look at the Chinese Zodiac with PCM board and community member Sarah Chung, and the many traditions that help us celebrate the New Year.
