A note from Talking Taiwan host Felicia Lin:

Did you know that there’s an annual flower show in New York featuring Taiwanese culture and orchids from Taiwan? Actually, I didn’t know this until one of my listeners reached out to me and told me about the upcoming Taiwan: A World of Orchids exhibit at the Queens Botanical Garden. Since I’m based in New York, I feel it’s my obligation to promote and inform people about all of the Taiwan-related events going on in New York. So I spoke with Pauline Huang, Chairwoman of the Queens Botanical Garden’s Board of Directors, who personally spearheaded the Taiwan orchid exhibit, which is now in it’s fourth year. I was really impressed by Pauline’s personal commitment to the Queens Botanical Garden and her follow through to make the first Taiwan: A World of Orchids exhibit happen back in 2014. Talk about “putting your money where your mouth is.” The Taiwan: A World of Orchids exhibit is coming up August 18-20th at the Queens Botanical Garden (43-50 Main Street, Flushing, NY 11355). Listen to this episode to learn more about the music, art and culture of Taiwan that you’ll experience at Taiwan: A World of Orchids.

 

Here’s a little preview of what we talked about in this podcast episode:

  • How Pauline not only spearheaded, but gave her personal assurance to make the first Taiwan: A World of Orchids exhibit happen in only 2 months time
  • The music and art you’ll experience at the Taiwan: A World of Orchids exhibit
  • Why Pauline believes it’s so important to give back to your community
  • How Taiwan is one of the top three countries that exports orchids
  • What sets Taiwan apart from other orchid producing countries
  • How you can buy a Taiwan orchid to take home for yourself
