 Dr Woo with Dan Sheehy and Konrad Ng  Calligraphy: East Wind
  On November 30, 2012, Dr. Woo was honored by the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage (CFCH) for her contributions to the historic Asian Pacific American program at the 44th annual Smithsonian Folklife Festival. Her beautiful scroll, which featured the Chinese character for "wind" (from The Classic of Changes) and which was created to bring the East Wind of fortune to all who view it, was formally accepted into the permanent collection of the Smithsonian. It is housed in a beuatiful display case in a prominent place in the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage, where future generations can continue to enjoy it. Pictured here in the photo (from left), are Dr. Daniel Sheehy, Director of CFCH, Ambassador for the Arts Catherine Yi-yu Cho Woo, and Dr. Konrad Ng, Director of the Asian Pacific American Center at the Smithsonian.

Dr. Cathy Woo is an accomplished poet, composer, painter, teacher, and writer, and the first Asian American woman to serve on the National Council on the Arts.

Cathy Woo's paintings have been shown in galleries and museums throughout Asia and the United States, including the United Nations, the Sackler Museum at Harvard University, and the National Gallery in Taipei, Taiwan. Her paintings have been described as visual poems, because of the simplicity, intensity, and purity of her expressions. A master of Feng Shui, the 4,000-year-old Chinese art of designing one's environment to maximize the flow of positive energy (ch'i), Cathy Woo channels an understanding of harmony and peacefulness into her work.
