It’s the year of the horse, an animal that “symbolizes strength, energy and open-mindedness, according to sponsors of a celebratory event at The City Library.
The event is free and open to the public and will feature a traditional Chinese lion dance, music, children’s activities – even a magic show. Jointly hosted by the Chinese Association for Science and Technology in Utah and the City Library, the event is partially underwritten by the Confucius Institute at the University of Utah. The lion dance will start Feb. 1 at 1:45 p.m. in the Urban Room, with additional cultural activities continuing at 2 p.m. in the Auditorium. An exhibit of Chinese Calligraphy will be on display in the Lower Urban Room from Jan 27–Feb 1.
