In honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, the Crow Museum of Asian Art of The University of Texas at Dallas will offer 31 Days of Asia in May virtually spotlighting a multitude of Asian art, cultural programming, and Asian-focused experiences online at the museum’s website, and the museum’s social channels.
Highlights include 31 works of art and objects from the Crow Museum’s permanent collection featured on Instagram; 31 Asian and Asian-American artists highlighted on crowmuseum.org; a variety of easy and family-fun art-making projects, and 31 stress-reducing mindfulness opportunities led by Crow Museum Senior Director Amy Hofland on Facebook. Also, 31 popular (and undiscovered) Asian restaurants, offering delivery and/or take out, will be featured on the website.
In addition, a variety of programs will be live-streamed on Facebook including Crow Unscripted led by Hofland with an array of special guests on Wednesdays at noon; Book Club and Movie Club discussions of works created by prominent Asian and Asian-American authors and filmmakers; and cooking classes featuring Asian-inspired cuisine.
And just in time for Mother’s Day and graduations, The Lotus Shop will offer 31 items for sale online, including one-of-a-kind jewelry, housewares, and framed art.
