Many Moons 2010--A Great Success!

"It gets better every year!"


Nearly 2500 people joined in the celebration of Asian arts and culture during the Many Moons Festival on September 12. Visitors came from all over Baltimore, the surrounding counties, and neighboring states of Virginia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and DC!


Ten different stage performances of dance and music, innovative hands-on arts and crafts, the electrifying dance and martial arts showcases were all time favorites of both children and adults. The crowds brushed shoulders through the Crossroads Marketplace looking for the perfects gifts, and appreciated a comforting break at the aromatic food court where an array of authentic and eclectic Asian fares were served to delight. Many savored a quiet moment in the galllery featuring the calming yet thought-provoking installations, "Interconnected," by acclaimed artist Yuriko Yamaguchi. 


Most importantly, families got to spend the day together, experiencing a total immersion in Asian culture at this one of a kind festivity in the region.Marketplace crowd


The responses were overwhelmingly positive. Hear what people had to say about Many Moons 2010.
 

Acknowledgments 

Our most heartfelt thanks go to the hardcore members of the Planning Committee for their countless hours of planning, efforts and resolve. We thank each one of the over 100 volunteers and Towson University staff for their dedication and hard work in the smooth operation of the event.

We are deeply grateful to all the sponsors and donors whose support made the Many Moons Festival possible. Their dedication testifies their commitment to enhancing cultural diversity in our communities.

 

TV winner

A Winner! 

 Over 370 visitors submitted a short survey about their experience at the Festival. Everyone who filled out a survey with an email address was entered into a drawing to win a new flat screen TV.

 

And the winner is.....Amy Raynes, who came all the way from Harrisonburg, Virginia to attend Many Moons 2010. Amy is the mother of a recently adopted daughter from China, named Lily. She shared with us that she is always looking for opportunities to expose her daughter to her native culture. We hope Amy and Lily are enjoying their new TV and that we will see them at the upcoming programs.

Grants & Support

The Asian Arts & Culture Center is a proud recipient of an operating grant from the Baltimore County Commission on Arts & Sciences which again endorsed a generous award of $18,000 in support of AA&CC's operation in FY 2011. We thank the Maryland State Arts Council for its continuing support with another significantly increased grant award of $15,548 for FY 2011. The Center is also honored by an ArtsConnect grant from the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation in making the tour of Kashu-Juku Noh Theater possible.


As the economy continues to slow down, with organizations facing budget cuts and shortfalls, we are particularly fortunate and appreciative for the unwavering support of these public grant agencies, as well as donations made by Towson University departments and offices, notably the Center for Student Diversity, and the Towson University Foundation to co-sponsor Asian Arts programs.


We are also in debt to the Macht Philanthropic Fund and McCormick & Co., Inc. who are among the most reliable community supports year after year.
