We would like to invite you to celebrate the Make a Wish! “Tanabata 七夕” Japanese Star Festival, funded in part by the Houston Arts Alliance and the City of Houston. As legend is told in Japanese culture, two star-crossed lovers, Vega and Altair, are separated by the Milky Way. They are allowed to meet only once a year on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month. This reunion marks the celebration of Tanabata (meaning the evening of the seventh). However, the Museum will celebrate this July 9th.
