Join Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs Peter Nisbet for a Last Look at Buddha and Shiva, Lotus and Dragon: Masterworks from the Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller 3rd Collection at Asia Society, which closes today, January 9. The exhibition features nearly seventy works of ceramic and metalwork from across Asia collected by the Rockefellers in the mid-twentieth century with belief that sharing these extraordinary works of art with audiences in the United States could facilitate cross-cultural dialogue.
