Maribeth Graybill, Ph.D.
The Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Curator of Asian Art

This lecture will explore the rich cultural contexts of the Han artifacts in the Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Collection of Early Chinese Art. Discover how objects, like those featured in the exhibition In Passionate Pursuit: The Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Collection and Legacy, shaped the foundations of Chinese culture. Dr. Graybill will explore Han artistic traditions shaped by both wild flights of the imagination and a grounded practicality.

Members free; non-members $15, seniors and students $12. Ticket includes admission to the museum and all current exhibitions. Advance ticket purchase highly recommended.
