Asian Art Museum May Events

Suzuki Harunobu / Asian Art Museum

This May, the Asian Art Museum will be hosting its First Thursday on May 7, with Docent Kirsten Shilakes who will discuss a flight of three sakes followed by a film featuring LUCKYRICE culinary festival founder Danielle Chang, as she travels across America exploring the Asian food landscape.

On May 21, the museum will facilitate a discussion about the aesthetics and ethics of contemporary Filipino American Art in the Bay Area and how it is a fertile ground for Filipino/American artists and performers. On May 28, the Artist Drawing Club series continue with Ma Li as she will present Gathering Among Stars, which will utilize the museum space as a nexus where past and future, East and West, institutions and individuals intersect.
