Additional Information

How did oxen come to be on earth? Join us for an interactive storytelling experience as we look, listen, and learn in our exhibition How to Make the Universe Right. Families and children of all ages are invited to discover how one ox’s celestial blunder became a blessing in How the Ox Star Fell from Heaven (1995).

After reading this Chinese folktale, a Museum Educator will lead families on a brief exploration of artworks related to the story.

Story Time is a short format, informal storytelling program facilitated by Fowler educators from 11:30 am – 12:30 pm on the first and third Friday of each month.


About the Exhibition How to Make the Universe Right (July 30, 2017–January 7, 2018) presents a large selection of rare religious scrolls, ceremonial clothing, and ritual objects of the Yao, Tày, Sán Dìu, Cao Lan, Sán Chay, Nùng, and other populations of northern Vietnam and southern China. Each group has their own traditions of educating and initiating priests and shamans, who serve as intermediaries between the physical and spiritual worlds and between the community and deities, in order to make the universe right through healing, balancing the forces of nature, and communicating with ancestors.
