The Society for Asian Art Cordially Invites You
to an Upper Category Member Event

Don't miss this unique opportunity to go on a curatorial tour with Aleesa Pitchamarn Alexander at the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford. Not only will Dr. Alexander discuss the fascinating Faces of Ruth Asawa installation, which features dozens of ceramic masks created by this celebrated Californian artist, but she will also lead us through the exciting East of the Pacific exhibition that just opened. Spanning the years 1880 – 2021, the 96 objects showcased in this exhibit are guaranteed to provide valuable historical insight
into how artists like Carlos Villa, whose works are currently on view at the Asian Art Museum, incorporated both Asian and American influences in their works.

After this morning tour, attendees may opt to view more art and/or have a no-host lunch at Tootsie’s, the Cantor’s small café serving delicious Italian sandwiches and light entrees. Whatever you choose, this promises to be a delightful outing for you and other Upper Category members.

Information about parking at the Cantor will be shared with registered attendees prior to the event.
