"A Thousand Cranes" - Celebrating 30 Years of Community Asian Theatre of the Sierra

Community Asian Theatre of the Sierra Invitation

Join us at the Eric Rood Center for the opening reception of the Art in Public Spaces exhibition "A Thousand Cranes" - Celebrating 30 Years of Community Asian Theatre of the Sierra on January 19 from 4:30 to 6:00 pm.

Show banners, photographs, props, posters and a special commemoration of the Asian-American history in our community from the Gold Rush to present day will be on display from January 15 - March 28. This important retrospective is the official launch of Art in Public Spaces, a new collaboration between Nevada County Arts Council and the County of Nevada, and kicks off celebrations for the Lunar New Year.

About this exhibit:

Community Asian Theatre of the Sierra (CATS) serves audiences from Nevada County and the Sierra Foothills to the greater Sacramento region and the San Francisco Bay Area. For thirty years it has offered a unique glimpse into Asian culture through the dramatic arts, providing education for people of all ages and, most importantly, lending agency to the Asian-American voice. Thanks to CATS we enjoy a deeper understanding of our own Asian-American heritage from the Gold Rush onwards, and to its ongoing contributions to this place we call home today.

As we enter the Year of the Dragon, A Thousand Cranes celebrates thirty years – from its roots to the present, from the dedication of so many during its foundational years to Elly nominations and state recognition. CATS remains, like the dragon, generous in spirit, selfless in love and a charismatic force to be reckoned with, with eyes set on the future.
