Freer | Sackler

The Freer Gallery of Art and the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery together form the Freer|Sackler, the Smithsonian’s museums of Asian art. Both are physically connected by an underground passageway and hold in trust the nation’s extraordinary collections of Asian art and of American art of the late nineteenth-century aesthetic movement.  Our mission is to encourage enjoyment and understanding of the arts of Asia and the cultures that produced them. We use works of art to inspire study and provoke thought. View more information on their Member Feature Page

Exploring the Arts of Asia
Presented by: Freer|Sackler

What can we learn about diverse cultures by looking at the arts of Asia? Students will discuss the geography of Asia and practice some close looking activities when an Outreach Educator visits your class. On week later, students will take a tour of Asian art to discover cultural values that shape different forms of expression. They will examine ancient objects to contemporary masterpieces, such as Chinese bronzes, a Japanese screen made by Hokusai, sculpture from India, and metalwork from Iran.
