Ain’t nothing new about ringing in the new year. Want proof? Head to the Asian Art Museum to partake in this age-old tradition, which includes a purification ritual before participants take a swing at the 2,100 pound, 16th century bell. Leave the bummers of 2017 behind and walk away inspired for 2018.
