Celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year (celebrated on February 12, 2021) with a storytime, UNC-Chapel Hill’s very own Flying Silk dance troupe, and a closer look at works on display at the Ackland!

Each month, the Ackland hosts a free program for families, kids, and the young at heart featuring hands-on art activities, live performances, tours, and more. Although the museum’s doors are closed for our community’s safety, you can still explore the art virtually!

A mix of D.I.Y. and live interactive activities await you, with more details to be added soon.
