About The Event

Instructor: Amanda Mikolic  

This four-week course introduces the art of the CMA’s world-class Asian collections to demonstrate the connections between various religious traditions and their influence on art. Individual sessions focus on cross-cultural comparisons of objects from India, China, Korea, and Japan and the spread of Buddhism, Hinduism, Confucianism, and Jainism.

In-person course, four sessions: Fridays, April 19, April 26, May 3, and May 17 (no class on May 10), 11:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.

This on-site course involves walking through the museum galleries. Gallery stools and assistive listening devices are available for use in the museum.

*Please meet for each session in the Parker Hannifin Corporation Donor Gallery (north courtyard lobby), located off the atrium, on the first floor of the museum.
