Near and Far: Arts and Cultures of East Asia


The Commission is very excited to be working with WheatonArts once again on a Creative Community Connections project entitled, “Near and Far: Arts and Cultures of East Asia.” Programming associated with this project will happen throughout this year and into 2019. It all begins with an exhibition of Vietnamese Dong Ho paintings, a form of woodcut art, at the Down Jersey Folklife Center on the WheatonArts campus beginning on Friday, May 11th. Hopefully we will see you at the opening reception!
