A new art exhibit in Queens is highlighting an old tradition as part of Lunar New Year celebrations.

"The Costume Art of Imperial Peking Opera" opened at Flushing Town Hall on Saturday, featuring handmade dresses with bright color and intricate details that were worn by performers in different productions.

Organizers said the exhibit gave visitors a close-up look at the costumes they typically see on stage during performances.

"We really wanted to use this opportunity to bring the communities together and really presenting global arts to our global community in New York City," said Ya Yun Teng, the Chinese Project Director for Flushing Town Hall.

You can check out the costumes through March 11.
