Oink! 2019 is the Year of the Boar.  (A.k.a. the pig!)

The Japanese American National Museum celebrates the Year of the Boar with a free day-long festival. Art projects that visitors can craft throughout the day include an origami boar, Pig Ears Headband,  and  a photo craft about setting goals

Other fun activities include a plush pig pen and a candy-making demonstration, (with a few lucky kids winning the finished pieces!) Kaiju vs Heroes artist Mark Nagata discusses his latest special edition sofubi toy figure, then signs figures and a special print of the header art created for the toy.

Museum visitors can sample Lucky Soba noodles and a selection of traditional Japanese New Year foods, explore the museum, and see a live art performance by Japanese calligrapher and hip hop dancer Kuniharu Yoshida and taiko player Walter Nishinaka.

See website for complete schedule of activities.
