Chinese Culture and Art Exhibit – Museum of Surrey Promotion


Hello, my name is Lynn Saffery. I’m Museum Director here at the Museum of Surrey. Museum of Surrey tells the stories of the people of Surrey from immigration to sustainability and really wants to be relevant to the people of British Columbia and the Lower Mainland. So what you see behind me is one of our Community Treasures exhibits, called Chinese Culture and Art. Community Treasures is a glimpse into the different stories and groups from Surrey. It tells about relevant topics that relate to Surrey and beyond and this exhibit here that you see has been completely curated by the Chinese Village Club and the Chinese Village Club’s mission is to tell the stories of Chinese culture to others. Traditional and contemporary artwork is from both local and international Chinese artists. For example the Lotus Pond Moonlight is done by Xiao Hu He from China and Yang Oin’s Catcher tells a bit of the story of Tibet, which is a place revered and seen as a special place for many people in the Chinese community. This exhibit is open until February 22nd, 2020, So while you’re here enjoying this great Community Treasures exhibit, come and enjoy our special events and our public programs that are held all throughout the museum and our campus. We have a TD Explore Zone, which is great fun for the kids to learn about sustainability and climate change and we have other galleries such as our Indigenous Hall and our Surrey Stories Gallery. The City of Surrey is a city of diversity and community and exciting stories. We are open from Tuesday to Sunday, and we are completely free, and accessible to all. So please visit our website to find out more about our programs and events at Surrey.ca/Museum. Welcome to your Museum.
