The Society for Asian Art's 14 day trip, Mongolia Unveiled, with an optional 4-night pre-trip to the Gobi Desert, will delve into the rich cultural and natural heritage of Mongolia.

Our scholar/trip leader will be Dr. Uranchimeg (Orna) Tsultem. Dr. Tsultem received her Ph.D. in Art History from the Unviversity of California, Berkeley, where she also taught and served as co-chair of the Mongolia Initiative Program at the Institue of East Asian Studies. She is currently the Edgar and Dorothy Fehnel Chair in International Studies, Herron School of Art + Design, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. Dr. Tsultem has had a long curatorial career exhibiting Mongolian art internationally since 1997, including the Venice Beinnale and the Shanghai Beinnale. She has written four books on Mongolia and published extensively. Dr. Tsultem is well-known to our members, having lectured for the Arts of Asia and other Society programs.
