The Enigma of an Exalted Monk
Ping Foong / Foster Foundation Curator of Chinese Art
Geneva Griswold / Associate Conservator
While the Seattle Asian Art Museum is closed for renovation, our curators and conservators have taken this rare chance to conduct research on the collection, including investigating a 14th-century Chinese Buddhist sculpture, Monk at the Moment of Enlightenment. Come find out what we’ve discovered so far about this rare wood sculpture’s identity.
Doors open at 6:30 pm for Happy Hour in the South Hall where you can enjoy complimentary wine. Curator talks begin at 7 pm in Plestcheeff Auditorium.
