完滿 (Yue Moon) means full circle, completion, full moon. ‘Yue Moon: Tiger with Wings’ is a community-engaged, interdisciplinary public art project rooted in Toronto’s Chinatown led by artist Paddy Leung and artist assistant Meegan Lim in partnership with STEPS Public Art and Chinatown BIA.
In its third iteration, ‘Yue Moon’ comes to life through a series of hands-on, intergenerational arts workshops that culminate in a public art exhibit of community co-created lanterns.
Inspired by the traditional Chinese Palace Lantern design, each panel showcases an illustration created by a workshop participant. Images of Chinatown’s histories, personal memories, and intentions for the new year create an immersive, luminous outdoor experience during Lunar New Year celebrations.
Located just beside Dragon City Mall and overlooking one of Chinatown’s latest public art murals produced by Wenting Li with STEPS, this outdoor lantern installation site is accessible for safe public viewing.
