Passport to Asia: An Odyssey Through Asian Art and History

(Fall 2008 - Spring 2009)

Thanks to the Society for Asian Art's renowned Arts of Asia Lecture Series,* speakers from the Bay Area and across the country will transport you to temples, palaces and sometimes forgotten centers of power, religion and art. Visit world wonders not simply as tourists do today, but also as monks and monarchs, artisans and aristocrats, traders and explorers experienced them over the centuries.

*The Society for Asian Art (SAA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization incorporated in 1958 by a group of citizens dedicated to winning Avery Brundage's magnificent art collection for San Francisco. Since that time, SAA has been an independent support organization for the Asian Art Museum — Chong-Moon Lee Center for Asian Art and Culture. SAA's popular, college-accredited Arts of Asia Lecture Series, open to all, is the core of the museum's docent-training curriculum.
