Famous works, including some never previously exhibited outside China, will go on display from artists including:

From February 18-21, four works will be featured at the Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center, including:

In addition to these works, the Atrium will be transformed into a contemporary artistic take on a traditional Chinese market, in Lv Shengzhong's "Creativity Bazaar", which will serve as both a real market showing handicrafts from across China and a contemporary art piece. The Bazaar will assemble traditional and innovative Chinese craftworks and New Year storing items that are specially collected from across China, including from Shanghai Museum, Nanjing Museum, Hunan Provincial Museum, Zhejiang Provincial Museum, Hubei Provincial Museum, CAFA Museum, Suzhou Museum and Ordos Museum. The Bazaar, which will be available for both public viewing and participation, along with the ancient market presented in Huang's work, together will form a unique comparison and offer audiences an opportunity to better understand Chinese New Year fairs and Chinese traditions of New Year storing.

Finally, upon the completion of the exhibit at the Atrium, two additional works of art will go on display at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center from February 22 to February 24:

The public art exhibit are part of a week of Lunar New Year events at cultural institutions around New York City by CAFA titled, "Happy Chinese New Year: Fantastic Art China", including a Fireworks Spectacular over the Hudson River (Feb 17), a lighting display of the Empire State Building (Feb 17-19), and other events hosted by partners including the New York Philharmonic, New-York Historical Society, National Dance Institute, US-China Cultural Institute / Committee of 100, the China Institute, and the Chinese Consulate in New York.
