  • MEMBER EVENT, TOUR & RECEPTION: Tuesday, May 21, 2019 – Reception and exhibit tour at the Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA) in lower Manhattan, 215 Centre St. near Canal St. Please join fellow NYTW members for an exclusive program at this very special museum designed by noted architect Maya Lin, who also designed the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. Museum president Nancy Yao Maasbach will greet the group as we sip wine and savor small bites from noted local Chinatown eateries. The group will then join tours of the museum’s permanent collection and current special exhibition: The Moon Represents My Heart: Music, Memory and Belonging, on view through September 15, 2019. Visit for complete information about the museum, its history and exhibitions. MOCA also features a very tantalizing branch of Pearl River Mart in its lobby, called MOCA Shop by Pearl River.
