"Arthur M. Sackler Gallery" Smithsonian Institute Museums / National Zoo Tip by grandmaR

  From Independence
by grandmaR

This is another new museum on the mall in the Smithsonian group that I'd never heard of.

From the Smithsonian website:

"Changing exhibitions of Asian art drawn from major collections in the United States and abroad highlight the varied artistic traditions of Asia, from ancient times to the present. The museum's growing permanent collection includes art from China, South and Southeast Asia, ancient and Islamic Iran, and Japan. The museum was founded in honor of a gift from Arthur M. Sackler (1913 - 1987), a medical researcher, publisher and art collector. "
