For its 20th annual Lunar New 
Year celebration, the Oakland 
Museum of California (OMCA) 
honored the holiday through a 
series of online events. Since 2001, 
there has been a festival to recognize 
the various Asian cultures that make 
up the local community. This time, 
the tradition continued remotely through a children’s story time with 
San Francisco author Oliver Chin, a collection of New Year–themed hands-on crafts, and a virtual trip to Taiwan with guide and OMCA family programmer Snowy Tung.
