Chinese New Year is upon us, and Dadeland Mall is inviting the Miami community to celebrate the entire month of February with a not-to-be-missed lineup of special events. From February 12-28, guests can view a mall wide exhibition of Chinese historical fashion, partake in our Art Talk series, and enjoy the sounds and sights of Chinese music and performances. All these family-friendly activities are designed to provide an auspicious and exciting start to the Year of the Sheep.
Dadeland Mall patrons can experience a visual history of China through our Chinese Fashion exhibition, featuring six curated wardrobes from significant periods in China. These outfits will be exhibited throughout the mall, and each display will communicate the history of the outfit to shoppers. All pieces have been kindly loaned to Dadeland Mall by the Taipei Economic & Cultural Office in Miami (TECO). You can find more information about TECO at www.taiwanembassy.org.
“This celebration is an exciting way to teach our community about Chinese culture,” said Dailen Rodriguez, director of marketing and business development at Dadeland Mall. “We are honored to host such dynamic artists and displays throughout the month of February at Dadeland Mall. It is our hope that Chinese consumers and tourists, along with our shoppers, enjoy the festivities and discover a culture rich in tradition.”
On select weekends throughout the month, Dadeland Mall will host ‘Art Talks’, engaging conversation with local Chinese artists that gives our visitors the opportunity to meet the artist and learn about their influences, ideas and creative process. Speakers include Dr. Fu Xin of the Fu Xin Gallery Contemporary Art and painter Su Yue Lee.
The month long festivities will also feature traditional Chinese music and dance performances. A schedule of the ‘Art Talks’ and performances will be made available at our Guest Services counter for guests to obtain and on simon.com
