The Silk Road: Ancient Globalization

Tuesday, September 19, 2017

Globalization isn't so new! A docent from the Asian Art Museum will take us for a tour along the Silk Road.

Before jet planes and smartphones, merchants and pilgrims spent months traveling over perilous land and sea routes to carry luxury goods and new ideas thousands of miles across lost civilizations. Accompany the travelers over high mountain passes and parched deserts on their voyages of discovery and exchange.

Through rich art experiences, centered on historic and contemporary artworks, the Asian Art Museum unlocks the past for visitors, bringing it to life while serving as a catalyst for new art, new creativity and new thinking.
