Exhibit: New this year is the Asian festivals, University Heights Lunar New Year street parade, and the diorama sets. The Asian festivals include different festivals celebrated in Asia throughout the year, not just Lunar New Year. The University Heights Lunar New Year street parade is centered around the Hsi Fang Temple with additional sitcom buildings. The buildings are connected to form a street where the Lunar New Year celebration takes place. The final section is the diorama sets. These are interesting little sets of a particular scene, each telling a story.

About the Creator, Eugene Chiang
My name is Eugene Chiang and I create miniature brick artworks. I started out collecting Legos and then got into building my own brick creations. The brick sets that I create all have something meaningful to me. One of my first brick sets that I created was the Buddhist Hsi Fang Temple. It is the temple that my wife Christina and have been part of for several years now. Since then, I have built many more sets. I wanted to use Lego and Lego related bricks to introduce people about Taiwan (where I am from originally) and the Asian culture. Showcasing the Lunar New Year here at the exhibit is the perfect introduction to the Asian culture.
我的名字是 Eugene Chiang，我創作微型磚藝術品。 我開始收集樂高積木，然後開始構建自己的作品，這些作品對我都有一些意義。 我和我太太 Christina 多年來一直參與寺廟的活動，我首批作品之一即是佛光山西方寺。 自此之後，我又製作了更多的作品。 我想用樂高和樂高相關的積木來介紹介紹人們關於台灣（我的出生地）和亞洲文化。 在展覽中展示農曆新年是對亞洲文化的完美介紹。
Where is minifigure Eugene in the exhibit this year?
My Lego minifigure (computer programmer) is somewhere among the display sets at the exhibit. See if you can find me again this year.
Hint: Just follow the food.
