An art exhibition exploring and celebrating mythology through  the visual arts, curated by Duncan Cook

Humans are storytelling creatures. From the dawn of consciousness we have explored, interpreted and celebrated the elements of our experiences by sharing narratives. Spanning the entire planet across hundreds of centuries, these stories contain similar themes and characters that Joseph Campbell referred to as The Hero’s Journey.

Live Music by: Lynn Tsai on the Yangqin (hammered Dulcimer) & Dizi (bamboo flute) and Cassie Chen on the Erhu (two-stringed bowed musical instrument) and Pipa (four-stringed musical instrument)
