FIRST WEDNESDAY GALLERY TALK
In the 15th century a Vietnamese ship carrying export ceramics sank near Cham Island. A fisherman uncovered the remains of the ship, the Hoi An, in 1993, leading to the discovery of over 150,000 Vietnamese ceramics. This talk will explore Phoenix Art Museum’s collection of ceramics from the excavation and their relevance to the Asian Gallery.
Speaker: Carolyn Greene, Curatorial Assistant of Asian Art, Phoenix Art Museum
This event is free with museum admission.
After the talk, please join us for an $18 cash (tax & gratuity included) no-host lunch in the Museum Orientation Room.
