The renovated “Art of East Asia” galleries present the museum’s significant collection as a journey through time and place. Starting with Chinese tomb art, then Buddhist icons, it continues with the art of Korea, Daoist visions from China, and decorative and sacred art from Japan. The design challenge was to create unique spaces for each area within a unified whole. Individual galleries have colors and touches of architectural detailing specific to their time and place. While throughout, sophisticated graphics in English and Spanish supplemented with headlines in Chinese, Japanese, and/or Korean offer consistency, as do the ebony-lacquered casework and platforms. The project was truly a creative collaboration with curator Sonya Quintanilla, the museum’s exhibition staff, and our team. The galleries were funded, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts.
