Communities + Collections Series

This new Gallery program consists of a series of lectures, tours, interactive programs and workshops with guest facilitators and speakers that will animate aspects of our diverse permanent collections. The first in this series will coincide with our exhibition Millennia: Asian Art through the Ages.

The Communities and Collections Series is an opportunity to hear from a diverse range of individuals and perspectives, and to gain insight on important works of the Gallery. In this installment, we look at the Asian Art collection and the relevance it has to different groups in our community.
