The Big Deal: ‘From The Land Of Asia: The Sam And Myrna Myers Collection’ At The Kimbell

by Zoee Acosta 25 Apr 2018 8:30 AM

The Kimbell Art Museum presents “From the Land of Asia: the Sam and Myrna Myer Collection.” The exhibition revolves around a passion for Asia and covers a broad historical range, from the Neolithic era to modern times. The objects are also highly varied in nature, from porcelain, ivory, and precious stones such as jade and rock crystal to Buddhist art and textiles and stunning costumes from Central Asia, Tibet, China, and Japan. Each treasure is exceptional in its shape, rarity, quality, function, or inherent message. The exhibition recounts fascinating historical events through themes such as the symbolism of Chinese jade, the trade in blue-and-white porcelain, Buddhism, Noh theater, the Japanese samurai, the tea ceremony, and the scholar’s studio. The astonishing array of outstanding works of art in the Myers collection is a testimony to Asia’s rich cultural heritage and unique customs and offers a broad panorama of Asian history in all its beauty and diversity. Sign up and win this Big Deal and take your family of four to see the exhibition, on view through August 19.
