Is it strange to note that Asian culture is having a moment in North Texas? Our area is home to a sizable Asian population, so it should come as no surprise that there are plenty of arts and culture events that are Asian in theme.

But I’ve noticed of late that many of our arts institutions are planning some really interesting events and exhibits steeped in Asian culture (that happens when you spend a significant part of your day monitoring events on the Art&Seek calendar like I do). Maybe it’s because Chinese New Year is a few weeks away? Regardless, I thought I would bring some of them to your attention.

If you make it out to any of these events, let us know by dropping us a comment.

    Thanks for the links! I just watched the clips of Lily Cai and the performances look fascinating. (I admit a small bias – the color guard girl in me always thrills to any use of flags.) I would love to check out their Dallas show!
