Art of China

This gallery is designed to simulate the experience of entering a contemporary Chinese home to view the homeowner’s collection of fine antiques. As in the installation, the viewing space for Museum guests also offers seating for viewing and contemplation. In fact, objects throughout this gallery are placed at different heights maximizing viewing opportunities for all. 

Take time to enjoy the beautiful scroll. Imagine yourself, much like a visitor to this gallery, entering into this space as viewers of old would have done to enjoy the serenity and beauty of this ancient landscape.
