Year of the Snake
The Asian Art Museum offered a free family day on Sunday with performances and activities dedicated to the upcoming Year of the Snake, the Chinese lunar New Year celebration which begins on February 10th.
The Chinese American International School from neighboring Hayes Valley provided a small student orchestra on traditional Chinese instruments that sounded great, though they were impossible to see from standing room around the edges of the seated audience, a longtime problem for live performances presented in Samsung Hall.
The real pleasure was watching parents hand in hand with their kids...
...negotiating old marble stairways together.
