Chinese New Year in the Arts & Design District

Carmel, IN – In celebration of the Chinese New Year, the Indianapolis Chinese Community Center, Inc. (ICCCI) has decorated the light posts in the Carmel Arts & Design District with red Chinese lanterns. Chinese New Year begins February 10, 2013. It marks the beginning of the year of the snake according to the Chinese calendar.

A collection of artwork by the Chinese students at ICCCI will be displayed in the Carmel Arts & Design District in the storefront window across from the Evan Lurie Gallery which is at 30 W Main st. The pieces represent the way the students feel about the Chinese New Year and how important it is to their culture. The artwork collection will be displayed until the end of March. Please note the 6 winning pieces of art displayed there.

ICCCI was established in 1995 by a group of immigrant families. It is entirely administrated by volunteers. After a decade of efforts, it has become the largest vocational Chinese language school in the central Indiana, enrolling approximately 290 students in 2009. It runs every Sunday afternoon at Carmel High School.
