The Art of Rice explores the extraordinary cultural significance of rice as reflected in Asian visual arts. Based on the interdisciplinary work of an international team of twenty-two scholars, artists, and other specialists, the exhibition includes more than 250 objects from thirteen nations - ranging from ancient ceramics, gilded screens, masterful sculptures and rare textiles, to contemporary paintings and popular religious depictions - that introduce audiences to a striking range of rice-related artistic expression while investigation issues of philosophy, religion, history, politics, and economics.
The Museum hours are Wed.-Sun.: noon - 5 p.m. and Thurs.: noon - 8 p.m. The exhibit will be on display from October 5, 2003-April 2004.
