Relics from the Deep: Ceramics from Vietnam’s Hoi An Ship Wreckage

Wednesday, October 4
12:00—12:30 P.M.
Asian Gallery
Free for Members, included with General Admission

In the 15th century a Vietnamese ship carrying export ceramics, the Hoi An, sank near the Cham Island. A fisherman uncovered the remains of the Hoi An in 1993, leading to the discovery of over 150,000 Vietnamese ceramics.

Join Carolyn Greene, Curatorial Assistant of Asian Art at Phoenix Art Museum, to explore the Museum's collection of ceramics from the Hoi An excavation and their relevance to the Asian Gallery.

Please join us for an $18 cash (tax & gratuity Included) no-host lunch at Palette following the talk.
 
Presented by Asian Arts Council, a support group of Phoenix Art Museum. For more information, please contact info@asianartscouncil.org.
