The Gardner Center for Asian Art and Ideas
The Gardner Center for Asian Art and Ideas is gearing up to go out and about with our programs while the Asian Art Museum is closed for renovation (beginning in spring 2017).
Offering dynamic public programs at the Asian Art Museum, Gardner Center events explore the vast diversity of Asia and its presence in the world. From history and culture to global health and urban design, we exchange ideas that include dialogue on challenging contemporary issues. We also invite you to experience a range of artistic expression related to Asia.
We are happy to announce that the popular Saturday University Series will still be held on Capitol Hill during Winter 2017 at the Seattle University campus, primarily in the spacious Pigott Hall. This new partnership with Seattle University’s Office of Global Engagement is in addition to our long-term partnerships with the Jackson School of International Studies at the University of Washington and the Elliott Bay Book Company. Look for our other programs such as Asia Talks, Art Globally, and performances to pop up at SAM downtown and elsewhere.
