Deepen your understanding and appreciation of the Newark Museum’s Asian collection with this four-part series presented by Dr. Annette Juliano.
Join us for an introduction to the arts and culture of Asia beginning with a brief discussion of Islamic arts, the bridge between West and East, moving eastward from South Asia to the Far East. Gain insight into the sacred beliefs and values that shape pictorial imagery, sculptural form, architecture and objects of devotion. Discover the similarities and differences in the arts of these diverse cultures and explore cross-currents of religious and aesthetic influence.
