DESCRIPTION

Asia Society Museum organizes groundbreaking exhibitions of both traditional and contemporary Asian and Asian American art.

The Museum, located on Park Avenue and 70th Street in New York City, is known for its Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller Collection of masterpiece-quality traditional Asian works.

The collection, universally described as "gemlike," includes objects from cultures across Asia that date from the 11th century BCE to the 19th century CE.

Asia Society Museum was one of the first American museums to establish a program of contemporary Asian art in the early 1990s. A recognized leader in identifying and fostering contemporary Asian and Asian American artists, the Museum announced the establishment of a Contemporary Art Collection in 2007.
