Get ready for the Chinese New Year with an intimate curator’s tour of the recently opened Portland Chinatown Museum, located in the heart of the New Chinatown/Japantown Historic District. The museum’s Executive Director and Curator, Dr. Jacqueline Peterson-Loomis, will guide you through the beautiful new installation of the museum’s 2,400 square foot exhibition Beyond the Gate: A Tale of Portland’s Historic Chinatowns.
After your museum tour, you will be treated to an authentic Chinese dinner at the nearby Red Robe Tea House and Café. You will certainly want to return to this new museum to see their ongoing programs and exhibits, so as part of this experience you will receive two tickets for complimentary admission to the museum for your next visit!
This party was initially offered at the 2018 AHC auction gala, and proceeds benefit AHC programs and operations. Thanks to Portland Chinatown Museum and Jacqueline Peterson-Loomis, Executive Director, and Red Robe Tea House and Café for this donation.
About The Architectural Heritage Center
The Architectural Heritage Center’s mission is to “inspire people to conserve the art, craft, and context of historic buildings and places to promote our cultural heritage as a vital element of livable, sustainable, communities.” We seek to preserve the historic character and livability of our built environment, and to promote sustainability through the re-use of period homes and buildings.
Owned and operated by the non-profit Bosco-Milligan Foundation, we empower people in the Portland region to preserve both landmark buildings and the regular “vernacular” vintage homes and storefronts that collectively define our neighborhoods, traditional downtowns,culture, history, and quality of life.
