Tomb Treasures: New Discoveries from China's Han Dynasty

Private Docent Tour at the Asian Art Museum

Members of the Harvard Club of San Francisco are invited to a Private Docent Tour of the Tomb Treasures exhibit at the Asian Art Museum.  China's Han dynasty (206 BCE–220 CE) achieved profound cultural and artistic influence.  Han royals built lavishly furnished tombs so that, in the afterlife, no need would go unmet.  On view for the first time in the U.S., 100 rare selections from recent excavations — including a jade coffin, rare bronze bells, elaborate crafts and much more — share the extravagance, artistry and elegance of Han royal clans.  For more information, see  http://www.asianart.org/regular/unearthing-han-tombs

.

Following the tour, you are invited to join the group for coffee/lunch at the museum cafe.  Coffee and lunch will begin at approximately 11:30 am.  Afterwards, you may re-visit the exhibits on your own..

.

This event is a joint event of the Harvard and Radcliffe Clubs of SF. It is open to members of the clubs and their guests.
