May art bring you good fortune! This year, the Met celebrated new beginnings and the one hundredth anniversary of the Department of Asian Art with traditions from across Asia. Families marked the Year of the Ram, one of the twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac, enjoying performances, interactive gallery activities, and artist-led workshops for all ages!
