Exploring China's Past at The Field Museum

©The Field Museum
After years of preparation, The Field Museum will open its Cyrus Tang Hall of China on June 24. Before you visit this major permanent exhibit, get your bearings at our special presentation on Monday, June, 29 by the Field's Lisa C. Niziolek, a postdoctoral fellow in East Asian anthropology and a member of the curatorial team. The program begins at 7:30 p.m.

Dr. Niziolek will guide us through examples of the ceramics, bronzes, textiles, sculptures, paintings, and puppets showcased in the 6,000 square foot exhibit, including artifacts recovered from the 800-year old Java Sea Shipwreck.

Please join us for a fascinating look at a culture filled with deep traditions and dynamic change. As the Chicago Sun-Times notes,  "As China asserts itself on the world stage, it is easy to reduce this ancient nation to sound bites and headlines, subsuming its history in discussions of global economic and world politics - but the Cyrus Tang Hall of China helps recalibrate our understanding of its rich culture."

Dr. Niziolek's talk is part of our Visiting Professor series, sponsored by the Friends of the Glencoe Public Library.
