3 in 30: From Jade to Bronze Ancient Chinese Art

with Lulan Yu, Adult Programs Coordinator

Tue, Dec 9, 11 – 11:30 am
Thu, Dec 11, 6:30 – 7 pm

Meet at Visitor Services Desk

Described in a two thousand-year-old source as the “fairest of stones,” jade has long been treasured in China. Join Lulan Yu, Adult Programs Coordinator, for a gallery talk that will explore Chinese jade objects and beautifully crafted bronze ritual vessels produced by the technologically advanced Chinese Bronze age cultures.

In upcoming months, we will offer a series of permanent collection gallery talks inspired by the special exhibition, Forbidden City: Imperial Treasures from the Palace Museum, Beijing, that look at global connections with Chinese art and culture. Visit Talks for more details.
