Art of the Ancient East - Expo Seattle 1962

Missing picture

The exhibition was selected from the Seattle Art Museum's collection to represent 12 countries in the Far East. Like much of the world's ancient art, the works were inspired by religion: Buddhism, Hinduism, Jain, Shino and ancestor worship. Most of the pieces are from the museum's Eugene Fuller Memorial Collection.

This excellent collection reflects the history of mankind throughout the Far East, with a special emphasis on the creative achievement of each period.

The 12 countries represented in the art of the Ancient East Gallery are Pakistan, India, Ceylon, Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, Burma, Japan, Korea, Tibet, the Republic of China and Nepal.

During the Seattle World's Fair, the Art Museum will exhibit its most important works in various fields.

A visit to the museum is highly recommended. It is located in Volunteer Park on Capitol Hill, almost directly east of the World's Fair. It can be reached by bus number 10 Capitol Hill. Opening hours: weekdays (closed on Mondays) 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sundays and holidays, noon to 5 p.m. (Closed Memorial Day); Thursday evenings, 7 to 10 p.m. Admission is free.
