The Story of the Bamboo Flower Plaque

Upon entering the 2014 Smithsonian Folklife Festival from the west, visitors are greeted by a 30+ meter bamboo flower plaque.

A celebratory tradition hailing from Hong Kong, the flower plaque is a product of collaboration between artist Danny Yung, chief craftsman Choi Wing Kei and his workshop, and the Smithsonian Institution.
