Curator led Art Museum exhibit tour

 The Princeton University Art Museum currently features the exhibit: "Eternal Feast: Banqueting in Chinese Art from the 10th to the 14th Century".  These banquets were about more than food, and their images more that mere adornments for the walls of the wealthy.

The exhibit is described here: https://artmuseum.princeton.edu/story/eternal-feast-banqueting-chinese-art-10th-14th-century

There is also a reference to it in the New York Times:  https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/21/dining/chinese-banquet-princeton-art-museum.html

Thanks to the wonderful assistance of the Association of Asian American Alumni of Princeton (A4P), Zoe Kwok *13, the Assistant Curator of Asian Art who put together the exhibit, has offered to give an exhibition tour to PA3 members, family, and friends on Saturday, January 25th, 2020 at 2 PM - 3 PM.  This is an exceptional opportunity to learn about a PU Art Museum exhibit directly from the curator.

Space is limited, so please indicate your desire to attend via an email to Tom Swift at tswift@alumni.princeton.edu.  Reservations will be taken on a first come, first served basis.  Please indicate your interest in participating in a lunch in Princeton (venue TBD) prior to the tour.  We'll organize that if there is sufficient interest.
