SPECIAL EXHIBITION
10am – 5:30pm

Get an up-close look Chinese portraits created during the Ming and Qing dynasties, that come from the renowned collections of the Museum’s Far Eastern section.
Showcasing a culturally important, but often-overlooked aspect of Chinese art and culture, the exhibition’s portraits are astonishing in their detail and embedded symbolism.  The visual appeal of the exhibition’s 25 works – some remarkably large – is enhanced by a number of sartorial and personal accessories, objects carefully selected for their resemblance to those seen in the paintings.

  1. I am doing a school project on publicity, PR and Social Media promotional use in Independent Films and short films and this would help me very much! Thank you. If anyone is looking for interns to work at the Film festival…please help me.
