Yangliuqing New Year Woodblock Prints Exhibit

Yangliuqing New Year Woodblock Prints Exhibit In-Person

To honor and celebrate Lunar New Year, you are invited to stop by the Asian Library to view rare and original New Year woodblock prints. (Fun Fact: This year is the Year of the Rabbit!)

The prints on display were crafted and produced in the early 1960s by artists from Yangliuqing, a market town in Tianjin, China. Linked to Chinese folk customs and daily life, the prints are popular ornaments for Lunar New Year decorations and express good wishes for the New Year.
