Since the reopening in October 2022, Heritage Museum of Asian Art has been providing free tours of the exhibits on the third Friday of every month. During our "Third Friday" events, we provide wine, cheese, and snacks as our experienced docents give professional introductions to our exhibits.
This month's event deserves special mention as we usher in AAPI Month. In order to celebrate and commemorate the contributions of Asian-Pacific Americans, Heritage Museum has been carefully preparing exciting exhibits and audience experiences since the beginning of the year. One aspect of this mission is our new Scholar's Gallery, which will be displayed through the end of the year. Themed on the life scenes of scholars in the late Qing Dynasty, this room shows the real arrangement of tables and chairs, wardrobes, sofa beds, bookshelves and so on. This new exhibition adds more historical and cultural elements, making this month's 3rd Friday event the most booked and visited since we've begun.
During the event, the guides actively interacted with the visitors, answered their questions and provided further explanations. The docents also shared background knowledge of various cultures and arts in Asia. Through the interaction with the audience, we jointly explored the charm of multiculturalism and deepened our understanding and appreciation of art from various countries.
Heritage Museum is very grateful for the support and participation from all walks of life on this 3rd Friday, and especially the enthusiastic response to this AAPI month event. Whether it is audiences from different backgrounds and cultures, or people with a passion for art and history, the participation of more people makes this event full of opportunities for different groups of people to understand and communicate with each other.
It is precisely because more people have become gradually interested in Asian culture that Heritage Museum's 3rd Friday free tours continue to be successfully held and the number of visitors continues to grow. In the future, Heritage Museum will continue to work hard to bring you more colorful cultural activities and wonderful art experiences.
