It turns out that I am an Origami Master. Those three beautiful black butterflies were all created by me. Give it a try and test your skills with a square sheet of paper. The event today was called the 1,000 Cranes Origami Festival. It was a great idea for an event, and the Asian American Resource Center was packed with other skilled Origami Artists working their magic.
As I have mentioned before, these photos are so good! Get over to the Asian American Resource Center before the Faces of Humanity exhibit is gone (until July 31st). Also, be sure to visit Ali Khataw’s website for some impressive photography.
I attended an event at the Asian American Resource Center again today. Here are some photos from the outside and from the rock garden atrium in the center of the facility.
I am new to Traditional Peking Opera, but I think I am hooked. I really liked Yu Ji’s sword dance from “Farewell My Concubine”. My favorite was the back and forth conversation between Yang Yanhui and Princess Iron Mirror as she tried to guess what was troubling him so much in “Mother-Son Renuion”. A super fun day!
Why should I visit the Asian American Resource Center, you might ask. Well, they have many cool events like the Peking Opera performance this afternoon. And if you get there before July 31st, you can see the photo exhibition by Ali Khataw called “Faces of Humanity”. These are some powerful portraits from around the world. If you are not near Austin, then at least check out his website to view his amazing photography.
