In 10 days,
the Lantern Festival will open
at Missouri Botanical Garden
in St. Louis.
Behind the scenes,
a monumental effort has been in place
for the past 6 weeks,
involving 100 skilled artisans and laborers
from Sichuan province in China.
An extraordinary exhibit of hand crafted
giant traditional lantern scenes
are nearly complete,
and will open to the public
at the only U.S. city selected for this gala exhibit.
Once open, the Lantern Festival will be
"Art by day, Magic by night."
Already, these skilled artisans have created
beautiful expressions of a great Chinese art form.
And the show has yet to begin.
Come see what 100 artisans have created!
