Additional Information

Celebrate the Chinese New Year at the Fowler! Join us for an interactive storytelling experience as we look, listen, and learn in our exhibition "Intersections: World Arts, Local Lives."

Families and children of all ages are invited to follow the Chang family as they learn the importance of sharing in "The Runaway Rice Cake" (2001). After the reading, 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. This event is free, no reservation required. All materials will be provided. Meet in the Fowler’s Lobby.


About the Exhibition "Intersections: World Arts, Local Lives" explores the roles that art plays in creating meaning and defining purpose for people across the globe. Art is not only a reflection of culture but can actively shape thought and experience. The objects on display have all intervened in the lives of those who made or used them—whether to educate, solve problems, assert leadership, assist in remembering, or provision loved ones in the afterlife. This exhibition offers a glimpse into the local histories and contexts of these objects and the stories and performances that surround them.
