Opening of the Pao Arts Center May 6, 2017




The Pao Arts Center opened Saturday, May 6 in Boston's Chinatown!

The opening included a large range of musical performances, Chinese art, art making, dancing performances, an ink art demonstration, and speeches by the passionate community leaders that helped build the new Pao Arts Center.

I am absolutely delighted and plan to visit often!
