Online via Zoom
A virtual lecture for museum members.
What constitutes a masterpiece? Why are some objects considered masterworks while others are relegated to lesser status? Explore these issues through a few of the treasures of the Asian Art Museum collection, including statues, jades, ceramics, and paintings. This one-hour virtual lecture by one of our museum community speaker docents is followed by a half-hour Q&A.
