Pacific Asia Museum is celebrating its 40 anniversary in 2011. This year, the museum will open our new exhibition, The Art of Pacific Asia, located in our new permanent Orientation Gallery. The exhibition will highlight themes and approaches to viewing and understanding the exhibitions of the museum. Visitors will be able to make their own connections to the arts of Asia.

There will be two signature 40th Anniversary exhibitions. Visions of the Orient: Western Women Artists in Asia 1900-1940 will be on view from march 3rd through May 29th. 40 Years of Building the Pacific Asia Museum Collection will be on view from July 7th through October 23rd.

We thank all of Pacific Asia Museum's supporters for being a vital resource for arts literacy and education, and for engaging the community in a constant dialogue about art, history, and intercultural exchange. We invite you to join us for this yearlong celebration as the Museum continues its mission to provide vibrant exhibitions and programming.
