On Friday night the Murfreesboro square was alive with art, people and a long, but colorful dragon. As a part of the evening fare, MTSU's Center for Chinese Music and Culture presented the traditional dragon dance.
In addition, the gallery at the Center for the Arts was filled with the aroma of Chinese food, and music played on the guzheng. This stringed instrument dates back 2,500 years. It is also known as the Chinese zither.
The art show in the Center's gallery will continue through March 6th, and it is free and open to the public.
In addition to the activities in the 'Boro Art Crawl, the university's Confucius Institute will present a Chinese New Year show at 7:00 o'clock next Friday night (2/16/2018) in the Hinton Music Hall of MTSU's Wright Music Building.
