My Favorite Things tours bring some of the most opinionated and fascinating artists, cultural producers and community figures into the galleries to discuss their favorite works of art. During Luminous: The Art of Asia, guests will illuminate works in the special exhibition and permanent collection for these engaging tours.
This week's tour features Cynthea Bogel, professor of Japanese art history at the University of Washington and former curator of Asian and ethnographic art at the Rhode Island School of Design Museum of Art. The author of two books and numerous articles on East Asian visual culture, she will consider modern motivations for the study of ancient art works alongside a discussion of their history.
Free with museum admission. Tour meets at the entrance to Luminous.
