Asia Week returns to New York
March 10, 2014 by Sarah
Asia Week is a celebration of Asian art and culture that takes place in New York City and the surrounding area. A total of 19 different museums and organizations will showcase works of Asian origin. Auction houses in the area will also have pieces that they will be selling to the highest bidder at special events throughout the area.
There will also be lectures and courses available for those who want to learn more about Asian art. For instance, there is a two-day course on Chinese Contemporary Art that will be held at Christie’s Education.
Other events include the 10th anniversary celebration of the Rubin Museum, which will coincide with their opening of an exhibit called ‘Bodies in Balance: The Art of Tibetan Medicine’. It will be catered by Stephen Starr Events and feature drinks, food, and entertainment for guests.
Promoters for these separate museums may look to printing companies to help them advertise. Flyers and posters put up in hotels or other populated areas might catch the attention of tourists or locals who enjoy art. Museums might also want postcards created so that they can reach out to people on their mailing lists and remind them about the events they’re hosting.
Asia week runs from March 14 until March 22. With so many museums in so many areas of the city participating, it should be easy for locals to get out to some events, whether they live on Manhattan or in borough areas like Long Island City .
