New Discoveries: China’s Han Dynasty

Thu, May 11th

Newly discovered in the tombs of Han royalty, this rare exhibit of more than 100 artifacts have survived over two thousand years. Spanning over four centuries, the Han period is considered a golden age in Chinese history and to this day, China’s majority ethnic group refers to itself as the “Han people” and Chinese script is referred to as “Han characters.” The Han royalty sought to glorify their status in life and the afterlife with lavish pleasures and dazzling goods of crafted jade, bronze, and gold. From the Nanjing Art Museum in China, and on view for the first time in the United States, the Asian Art Museum will be the only venue for this exhibit. A private, docent-led tour is included for the exhibit. In the afternoon, enjoy free time to explore exhibits of the permanent collection and lunch on your own in the museum café.
