Society for Asian Art and Asian Art Museum are separate non-profit organizations with separate memberships. Please use the appropriate registration buttons to register for Society programs.

Enter the magical world of Asian myths and folklore as the museum’s superb storytellers tell tales never meant for children, full of passion and intrigue. They will regale us with stories that bring selected art objects to life, some from our collection, others from our special summer exhibitions, The Bold Brush of Au Ho-Nien and Tattoos in Japanese Prints. Not only will storytellers share fascinating lore with us, they’ll also give us a bit of background on the art of storytelling. You might discover that you have a hidden yen to tell tales yourself!
