Event Image Exhibition | "Whiting Tennis: My Side of the Mountain" | Jan. 18 - March 23
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Whiting Tennis is a Seattle-based mixed media artist who merges interests in folk and Pop art with surrealism in his artworks, which include paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, and collages. Often derived from doodles and automatic drawings, his art combines Western landscapes, lonely forms, and dilapidated buildings to create a distinctly American narrative. Organized by Collection Curator Jonathan Bucci, the exhibition will feature a range of work from the past 10 years.

Chinese New Year
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Montag Center

The Chinese New Year is an important traditional Chinese holiday. In China, it is also known as the spring festival. Often, the evening preceding Chinese New Year's Day is an occasion for Chinese families to gather for the annual reunion dinner. It is also traditional for every family to thoroughly cleanse the house, in order to sweep away any ill-fortune and to make way for good incoming luck. Windows and doors will be decorated with red color paper-cuts and couplets with popular themes of "good fortune" or "happiness", "wealth", and "longevity." Other activities include lighting firecrackers and giving money in red paper envelopes.
