Abrons Teams Up With Chinatown Arts Groups to Offer Special Lunar New Year Photo Calendar
Abrons Arts Center, Wing on Wo’s the W.O.W. Project, and Welcome to Chinatown come together to celebrate the Year of the Metal Ox with the launch of the first edition of From Chinatown, With Love, a special Lunar New Year photo calendar. Designed by photographer Mischelle Moy, the 12-month photo calendar features products from 18 Chinatown businesses that evoke celebration of the new year and explore the deep meaning Manhattan’s Chinatown holds for so many in the Asian American community.
Kicking off on February 6, 2021, the program includes the distribution of the first edition of the calendar along with a special “gift guide” featuring products at the participating stores. Fans and supporters who spend $20 or more at participating businesses will receive a free calendar (while supplies last). Beginning on February 12 (officially Lunar New Year), a limited run of calendars will also be on sale at Wing on Wo’s website. A percentage of proceeds from calendar sales will be donated to the Welcome to Chinatown’s Longevity Fund, a relief fund that supports small businesses in Chinatown.
