Friends of Decorative Arts: Highlights From the Asian Art Collection
The decorative arts – fine furniture, jewelry, ceramics, and glass – are all around us and in the Museum. FODA expands understanding of their variety and beauty. Plus, you will make new friends at the meetings. Annual dues are $50 in addition to a minimum of a Dual Level Museum membership.
FODA programs are held on the second Tuesday of the month at 2 pm during season. Non-FODA members can attend for $5, plus MFA admission.
The MFA collection includes hundreds of artwork from all over Asia. Some works can only be displayed for brief periods due to their delicate nature. From textiles to jewelry, Curatorial Assistant Stephanie Chill will highlight significant Asian artworks on view and from the MFA storage vault.
